The line equation in slope-intercept form is , where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

First find the slope of the line.  If two lines are parallel, their slopes must be equal.

The line parallel to  has the same slope. Compare the equation with

slope-intercept form and find the slope of the line.

Slope of the line (m) = .

Substitute  and m = in the point-slope form
