Slope-intercept form is $y=mx+b$
Parallel means same slope different intercept.
Solve for b given point (1,-1)
Multiply both sides by 5.
Subtract 2 from each side.
Divide each side by 5.
$-1=\frac{2}{5\left(1\right)+b}$
$-5=2\left(1\right)+5b$
$-5=2+5b$
$-7=5b$
$\frac{-7}{5}=b$
$y=\frac{2}{5x}-\frac{7}{5}$
