# A line passes through #(5 ,0 )# and #(7 ,3 )#. A second line passes through #(3 ,1 )#. What is one other point that the second line may pass through if it is parallel to the first line?

see below

then gradient of two lines should be same since parallel.

If the second line is parallel to the first line passing through points (5, 0) and (7, 3), then it must have the same slope as the first line.

The slope of the first line can be calculated using the formula:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{\text{change in } y}}{{\text{change in } x}} = \frac{{3 - 0}}{{7 - 5}} = \frac{3}{2} ]

Since the second line is parallel to the first line, it must also have a slope of ( \frac{3}{2} ).

Now, using the point-slope form of a line equation, we can find the equation of the second line using the given point (3, 1):

[ y - y_1 = m(x - x_1) ]

Substituting the values of ( m ), ( x_1 ), and ( y_1 ) into the equation:

[ y - 1 = \frac{3}{2}(x - 3) ]

Now, solve this equation for ( y ) to find the equation of the second line.

[ y = \frac{3}{2}x - \frac{9}{2} + 1 ] [ y = \frac{3}{2}x - \frac{9}{2} + \frac{2}{2} ] [ y = \frac{3}{2}x - \frac{7}{2} ]

So, the equation of the second line parallel to the first one is ( y = \frac{3}{2}x - \frac{7}{2} ).

Now, you can find another point on this line by choosing any value for ( x ) and then calculating the corresponding ( y ) value. For instance, if ( x = 1 ), then:

[ y = \frac{3}{2}(1) - \frac{7}{2} = \frac{3}{2} - \frac{7}{2} = -2 ]

Thus, when ( x = 1 ), ( y = -2 ), giving us the point (1, -2) as another point through which the second line passes.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
