Question

# The equation 2x + 7 represents a north path on a map. Find the equation for a path that passes through the point (6, 3) and is parallel to the north path.

Hint:

- Parallel lines are lines in a plane that are always the same distance apart. Parallel lines never intersect.

## The correct answer is: y = 2x - 9

- We have been given an equation that represents the north path on a map.
- We have to find an equation for a path that passes through the point (6, 3) and is perpendicular to the north path.

Step 1 of 1:

We have given a line passes through a point (6, 3) and parallel to a line y = 2x + 7

Since two parallel lines have same slope.

So, Slope of the line will be 2

Therefore the equation of the line will be

y - 3 = 2(x - 6)

y = 2x - 9

y = 2x - 9
