Answer:

The slope of a parallel line is 1

Explanation:

Remember that the slope intercept formula is

#y = mx + b#

where m is slope and b is the y intercept.

For the equation #y = x + 7#, the slope is 1

The definition of a parallel line graphically speaking is another line of the same slope that intersects another point on the graph. Therefore, the slope of a parallel line is 1.

Answer:

#1#

Explanation:

Given equation

#y = x + 7#

It’s in the form of

#y = mx + c#

Where #m = "slope of the line"#

On comparing two equations, we get #m = 1#

Therefore, slope of the line and any line parellel to it is #1#
