# How do you write an equation for the line that is parallel to y=2x+7 and passes through (3,11)?

Aug 5, 2016

$y = 2 x + 5$

#### Explanation:

Parallel lines have the same slope. This means our line has a slope of 2.

Using the general form for the equation of a line we have:

$y - b = m \left(x - a\right)$

$y - 11 = 2 \left(x - 3\right)$

$y = 2 x + 5$
