slope intercept form

0 votes
i'm so confused on this homework problem.
It says to write an equation in slope intercept form:
parallel to y=4x-5, y intercept at -6

how do you work that out?

The  slope intercept form is y=mx+b  where m is slope and b is intercept

Given slope intercept is y=4x-5 ; y intercept at -6

here slope m=4

If the two lines are parallel then their slopes are equal

so, the required line has slope m = 4 and y intercept -6

the solution is y = 4x - 6
