write an equation in slope intercept form for the line that satisfies each set of conditions.

1. Passes through  (-6, 15), parral to the graph of 3x + 2y = 1

2. Passes through  (5, -2), perpendicular to the graph of x + 2y = 8

1.  The slope of 3x +2y =1 is -3/2.  A line parallel to this line and passing through (-6, 15) is

y-y1 = m (x-x1)

y- 15 = -3/2 ( x+6)

2.  The slope of x +2y = 8 is -1/2

So the equation of aline passing through (5,-2) and parallel to the line x+2y = 8 is

y+2 = -1/2 (x-5)
