# How do you write the equation of the line that is parallel to y=x+3 and passes through (-4,1)?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

If one line is parallel to another line, then they have the same slope,

Plugging the parallel slope,

Adding to

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

graph{(y-x-3)(y-x-5)=0}

#### Explanation:

A line parallel to a given line say

Hence a line parallel to

Hence equation of desired line is
