Step 1

Given,

           line passing through (-2,6) and parallel to x + 5y = 7

Since, slope of the parallel lines are equal.

 x + 5y = 7

 5y = – x + 7

 y = (–1/5) x + (7/5) which is slope-intercept form.

Slope = –1/5

So, slope of the required line is –1/5.

Step 2

 Therefore, equation of the line passin...
