# The equation of line CD is y = −2x − 2. How do you write an equation of a line parallel to line CD in slope-intercept form that contains point (4, 5)?

##### 1 Answer

See explanation this is a long answer question.

#### Explanation:

CD:

Parallel means the new line (we will call it AB) will have the same slope as CD.

Now plug in the given point.

Solve for b.

So the equation for AB is

Now check

Therefore
