???????????????? "passesessesssssssss thru" ????????????

a line GO THRU points

me assume that formula shood be y=(3/5)x-9, so slope=0.6


extend line from x=-10 tu x=0, deltax=10, deltay=slope*deltax=0.6*10=6

y=-23+6=-17, so line go thru (0,-17)


muneepenee's answer is correct.

Parallel to means "has the same slope as", so the answer will also have a slope of 3/5. And the Y Intercept (c) is calculated by working the given point back to the y axis (where x = 0) using the slope (each 1 unit of x corresponds to 3/5 units of y)

Given y= 3/5x -9
And point(-10, -23)
slope of =3/5
To pass through a point

SUBTRACT the values of the point from their relative variable

Hence the equation is: y=3x/5-17
