{{ printedBook.courseTrack.name }} {{ printedBook.name }} Let's start by remembering the definition of the slope of a line. $m=runrise $ The given line $y=2x−5,$ which is written in slope-intercept form, has a slope of $2.$ This means that for every unit we move right, the line moves up $2$ units. Recall that parallel lines have the same slope. Let's look at the given diagram for a line with a slope of $2.$

From the diagram above, we can see that only line $c$ has a slope of $2.$ Therefore, line $p$ is the only parallel line to $y=2x−5.$

Let's graph both lines, $y=2x−5$ and line $c,$ on the same coordinate plane.
