we need to know the following.
parallel lines have equal slopes
the equation of a line in slope-intercept form is.
$\overline{\underline{|\frac{2}{2}y=mx+b\frac{2}{2}|}}$
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.
rearrange 2x−y=16 into this form
subtract 2x from both sides
$\overline{)2x}\overline{)-2x}-y=16-2x$
−y=16−2x
multiply all terms by - 1
y=2x−16
slope =m=2
hence slope of parallel line =2
