Calculation:
As the given in the figure the railroad track and passes through the points and Therefore slope is $\frac{0-4}{8-11}=\frac{-4}{-3}=\frac{4}{3}.$
As the new bike path is parallel to rail road track so slope are equal. Slope of new bike path is $\frac{4}{3}.$
Equation of new bike path is:
$y-5=\frac{4}{3}\left(x-4\right)$
$3y-15=4x-16$
$4x-3y=16-15$
$4x-3y=1$
Thus, equation of the bike path is
