Use the slope formula with the two last points \[\frac{ y_{2 } - y_{1}}{ x_{2}-x_{1} }\]

So the slope would be \[\frac{ -8-7 }{ -2-3} = -15/-5 == \]

Slope = 3

And we know that parallel lines have the same slope

Did you plug in the slope in y = mx + b form? and plug the first coordinates into that and solve for b?
