Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are given the slope of the line which you are to find. Where you say? It is given that it is parallel to the line y=2x3, parallel lines have equal slope so the slope of the line you are to find is 2. (the coefficient of x).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let me double check my work. 2 (y 3)  =  cross multiplying 1 (x +2) 2x+4 =y  3 y=2x + 7 appears to be correct
