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