##### 2 Answers

Or converting to the slope-intercept form:

#### Explanation:

First, we need to find the slope of the equation given in the problem by converting it to the familiar slope-intercept form by solving for

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

Therefore we know the slope of this line and a line parallel to this line is

We can now use this slope and the point and the point-slope formula to find an equation for the line requested in the problem:

The point-slope formula states:

Where

Substituting the values from the problem and the calculate gives:

Or converting to the slope-intercept form:

#### Explanation:

we change to

since it is a parallel line, they have a same value of gradient,where
