Step-by-step explanation:

a parallel line has the same slope. that is the actual meaning of "parallel".

so we need to find the slope of line t to get our answer.

remember, the slope is the ratio " y coordinate change / x coordinate change" when going from one point on the line to another.

so, here we have 2 points (9, 10) and (3, 3).

going from the first to the second we see

x changes by -6 (from 9 to 3).

y changes by -7 (from 10 to 3).

the slope is then -7/-6 = 7/6.

and therefore, the slope of u is also 7/6.
