# What is the equation of the line which passes through (5, –2) and is parallel to x = 4?

I found $x = 5$

#### Explanation:

Your line of equation $x = 4$ is a perfectly Vertical line passing through $x = 4$. A parallel to this will be another vertical line of similar equation but passing through $x = 5$ (it will automatically pass through $y = - 2$).
So your line will have equation:
$\textcolor{red}{x = 5}$
