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) = 7.

Substitute  and m = 7 in the point-slope form equation .

Graph of the parallel equations and .

The slope-intercept form line that passes through origin and parallel to line is .
