How do you write the equation of the line that is parallel to y=x+3 and passes through (-4,1)?
If one line is parallel to another line, then they have the same slope,
Plugging the parallel slope,
Graphing them both at the same time, reveals two separate graphs which have the same slope (i.e., they are parallel). The top graph passes through
A line parallel to a given line say
Hence a line parallel to
Hence equation of desired line is
