Chapter 3 - Section 3.5 - The Point-Slope Form of the Equation of a Line - Exercise Set: 31

Answer

y=-3x-8

Work Step by Step

3x+y=6 3x-3x+y=-3x+6 y=-3x+6 For the given equation above, m=-3. Since they are parallel, the desired line will also have this slope. y-y$_1$=m(x-x$_1$) y-(-5)=-3(x-(-1)) y+5=-3(x+1) y+5=-3(x)-3(1) y+5=-3x-3 y+5-5=-3x-3-5 y=-3x-8
