The slope of a parallel line is 1

#### Explanation:

Remember that the slope intercept formula is

where m is slope and b is the y intercept.

For the equation

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.

#### Explanation:

Given equation

#y = x + 7#

Itâ€™s in the form of

#y = mx + c#

Where

On comparing two equations, we get

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