I'm just a few credits shy of graduating and of cause I left all my Math courses for last. I HATE MATH. It's only week 1 and I already feel like I'm drowning. Any who there's a problem I'm really stuck on. Any have any ideas on what I should do to solve?

Find the value of k so that the line containing the points (7,k)(and (8,−8) is parallel to the line containing the points (−2,0) and (−4,−5).

I already e-mailed my teacher but just in case anyone has some idea. Thanks in advance!
