    rewrite the line in slope intercept form y=(4/3)x+4 so the slope is a 4/3 and so will the slope of the line that will be parallel.

    The given point is (-3,4) so we use the slope formula again: 4 y-4 --- = ----- 3 x-(-3) 4x+12=3y-12 3y=4x + 24 y=(4/3)(x)+8

    that is the equation for the parallel line, parallel to4x-3y=-12 and passes through (-3,4)
