#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

Because this equation is already in slope-intercept form we can take the slope directly from this equation.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

Therefore, for the equation in this problem the slope is:

Because a line parallel to this line will have, by definition the same slope, the slope of a parallel line will also be:
