# What is the equation in point-slope form and slope intercept form of the line containing the point (4, 6) and the parallel to the line y= 1/4x + 4?

Line $y 1 = \frac{x}{4} + 4$

Line 2 parallel to Line y1 has as slope: 1/4

$y 2 = \frac{x}{4} + b .$

Find b by writing that Line 2 passes at point (4, 6).

$6 = \frac{4}{4} + b \to b = 6 - 1 = 5.$

Line $y 2 = \frac{x}{4} + 5$
