Line P is described by the equation 3x + 2y - 4 = 0. Which of the following lines is parallel to P and has the same x-intercept as the line 5x - y + 10 = 0?
A)6x = -4y + 8
B)-y = (3/2)x + 5
C)3y = (- 9/2)x - 9
D)4x + 6y +8 = 0
E)6x - 4y = -12
Line parallel to P will have same slope as P. Also it has same x-intercept as line 5x-y+10=0 i.e x=-2
Slope of line P 2y=-3x+4 => slope = -3/2
Look for an answer with x-intercept =-2 and slope =-3/2
A) x-intercept = 4/3. Eliminate
B) x-intercept = -10/3 Eliminate
C) x-intercept = -2. Also, slope = -3/2. We have the answer.
