Q:
# What is the slope of any line parallel to the line 8x+9y=3 in standard (x,y) coordinate plane?

Accepted Solution

A:

8x + 9y = 3

9y = -8x + 3

y = -8/9x + 1/3...the slope here is -8/9. A parallel line will have the same slope....so any line parallel to 8x + 9y = 3 will have a slope of -8/9

9y = -8x + 3

y = -8/9x + 1/3...the slope here is -8/9. A parallel line will have the same slope....so any line parallel to 8x + 9y = 3 will have a slope of -8/9
