Consider the given equation.
Recall that have the same . Because of this, we know that all
lines that are parallel to the given one will have a slope of
We can write a general
equation in for all the lines that are parallel to the given line.
Now we have to find the value of the . To do so, we will substitute the given point
in the above equation, and solve for
Now that we know the value of the
intercept, we write the equation of the parallel line to
