Please look in your text book for this problem Statement

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


              (Substitute )

           (Apply distributive property: )

                 (Product of two same signs is positive)

                       (Multiply:  )

                             (Apply additive indentity property: )                 (Subtract 1 from each side)

                       (Apply additive inverse property: )

                            (Apply additive indentity property: )

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

line is .
