In Exercises 25and 26, find the equation of the line in the form y = m x + b .The line contains (g, h) and is parallel to the line y = a b x + c .

To determine

Find an equation of the line which contains (g, h) and is parallel to the line y=abx+c.

Explanation

Let m1 be the slope of the line y=abx+c

Let m2 be the slope of the line for which the equation to be found.

Compare y=abx+c with the general equation y=mx+b

m1=ab

Since slope of the unknown line is parallel to the line y=abx+c

m2=m1

So,

m2=ab

The unknown line equation can be found using its slope m2=ab and gh using the relationship y-y1=m(x-x1)

Now, x1=g and y1=h

Then, y-h=ab(x-g)

Multiply y-h by b
