# How to write the slope intercept form of the equation of the line described; (-2,-1) parallel to y=-3/2x-1?

##### 1 Answer

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The equation in the problem is in slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

Therefore the slope of this line is:

Parallel lines by definition have the same slope. Therefore, we can substitute this slope into the formula giving:

We have been given a point on the parallel line so we can substitute the values of the point for

We can now substitute the slope and y-intercept into the formula giving:
