# What is the equation of the line in standard form that passes through the point (-1, 4) and is parallel to the line y = 2x - 3?

$\textcolor{red}{y = 2 x + 6}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{both the two line have the same slope}$

$\text{for the Line y= "color(blue)(2)x-3" "slope=2}$

$\text{for the red line}$

$s l o p e = 2 = \frac{y - 4}{x + 1}$

$2 x + 2 = y - 4$

$y = 2 x + 2 + 4$

$\textcolor{red}{y = 2 x + 6}$
