Write the equation of a line that is parallel to y = (8/21)x  1 and goes through (0,5).
Two things to note here:
 parallel lines have equal slopes  at the yintercept, the value of x is zero Parallel to y = (8/21)x  1 would have the same slope. slope = 8/21 The point (0,5) is the yintercept, because at the yintercept, x is zero. yintercept is 5 y = mx + b {slopeintercept form} y = (8/21)x + 5 is the equation of the line. {substituted into slopeintercept form} Ask the House
