#### Explanation:

To solve this problem, we'll need to use our friend the point slope formula. (You'll use this formula in more advanced math more often then you think!)

Point slope formula is:

If it's parallel to the line, then it must have an equal slope. The line is given in

Looking at our coordinates the x coordinate is 0 and the y coordinate is 4 so that gives us

Now we solve for y by distributing the 3 on the right side and adding 4 to both sides.
