    just add the x to both sides y=x+5

    do you know how that equation will be if it was perpendicular?

    perpendicular to a line that has an equation of -x+y=5

    You want the equation of a line that is perpendicular to -x+y=5 and that passes through the point (2,-5)?

    Well since we put -x+y=5 into y=mx+b form y=x+5 we can see the slope is 1. a line perpendicular to that would have a slope of -1. So use that and your point to find the equation. y+5=-1(x-2) simplify that

    would it be the same if it were solving for a parallel line?

    No, parallel lines have the same slope.
