Example: Determine the equation of the line which passes through the point (8, 2) and is, parallel to the line given by 10 y+ 3x = -2
Solution
In both of parts we are going to require the slope of the line given by 10 y+3x= -2 thus let's actually determine that before we get into the individual parts.
10 y = -3x - 2
y = - 3/10x -1/5 ⇒ m_{1} = -3/10
