Use the result in Exercise 20 to find the equation of the line that contains ( 5 , - 1 ) and is parallel to the graph of 3 x - 4 y = 12 .

To determine

To find:

The equation of the line that contains (5,-1) and is parallel to the graph of 3x-4y=12.

Explanation

Given equation is,

3x-4y=12

Given point is, (5,-1)

To find the equation of the point (5,-1) parallel to the equation 3x-4y=12 follow as below,

First needed to find the slope of the given equation,

3x-4y=12

Formula for finding the slope:

y=mx+c

Here, m is the slope.

-4y=12-3x

Divided by 4 on both sides of the above equation,

y=-12-3x4

y=-124+3x4

y=-3+3x4

Where, m=34

Since the lines are parallel, 34 is also the slope of the line to be find
