Use point-slope form: $y - {y}_{1} = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$

${y}_{1} = - 4$

${x}_{1} = 6$

We don't have $m$. $m$ will be the slope of the equation of the parallel line. You can find that by writing the other equation as $y = m x + b$ and getting the $m$ from that equation. However, since we don't have the slope, we'll simply use $m$:

$y - \left(- 4\right) = m \left(x - 6\right)$

$y + 4 = m x - 6 m$

$y = m x - 6 m - 4$
