Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so it says we need to have a line parallel to the one above. Whenever lines are parallel that means they will have the same slope. :) That means we have y=x so far and to get the rest of the equation we use the pointslope formula. yy1=m(xx1) In this problem m=slope, and (4,1) is (x1,y1). So once we pluck in the stuff in, we have y1=1(x4) Now we distribute the parenthesis y1=x+4 And now we add 1 to both sides :) y=x+5 > This is the equation which we now found :)
