Hello,

I'm trying to figure this Geom. Problem out, but i can't get it, it is "Write an equation of the line that passes through point P and is parallel to the line with the given equation"

Problem: P (1, -2) y=5/4x-8 ......

I did the problem, but it keeps on coming out to be y=5/4x+15/4? But the actual answet is y=5/4x-13/4

Can anyone get that answer by doing it? I think i'm missing a step..
