Write an equation for the line that is parallel to the given line and that passes through the given point.

y = 1/2x – 8; (–6, –17)

a.  y = 2x – 14

b.  y = 1/2x – 14

c.  y = 1/2x +5/2

d.  y = -2 + 14

slope will be same if it is parallel

so slope = 1/2

point (-6,-17)

equation is 

  y - y1 = m (x - x1)

y - - 17 = 1/2  (x - - 6)

2(y+17) = x+6

2y+ 34 = x +6

2y = x - 28

y= 1/2 x -28/2

y= 1/2 x - 14.......................................................


option B              y = 1/2 x – 14 ..........................................ANSWER
