Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.
The outlined content above was added from outside of Formative.

What is an equation of the line that passes through (3, -1) and is parallel to the equation below?
Give your answer in slope-intercept form.
y = 4x + 11
y = (1/4)x + 11
y = (-1/4)x + 11
y = -4x + 11
