#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#y=2x-5" is in this form"#

#"with slope m "=2#

#• " Parallel lines have equal slopes"#

#"equation of a parallel line with "m=2" and "b=9#

#y=2x+9#
