the equation of a line in slope-intercept form is.
y=mx+b
where m is the slope and b the y-intercept
rearrange 2y=4x−2 into this form
divide all terms by 2
y = 2 x - 1 in slope-intercept form
with slope m=2
Parallel lines have equal slopes
m parallel = 2
y = 2 x + b is the partial equation
to find b substitute (−3,5) into the partial equation
5 = - 6 + b b = 5 + 6 = 11
y = 2 x + 11 equation of parallel line
