If the line containing the points (a,5) and (7,14) is parallel to another line with slope 3, find a. Explain.

Step 1

Let the equation of the line passing the points (a,5) and (7,14) be;

Step 2

Now. since this line given in Eq(1). is parallel to another line whose slope is 3. This implies that the slope of the line given by Eq(1) is also 3 because the slopes of parallel lines are equal.

Therefore, m = 3

Step 3

Now let's substitute m =3 in Eq(2)....
