    slope form y = mx + b; m is the slope

    if the slopes are the same, the lines are parallel

    Ok so how would I go about doing a question that asked me this... slope intercept equation of the line whose graph is parallel to y=2x-5 and has te y-interceot (0,9) There is no way I could do that one on my own!

    they are parallel so the slope will stay the same y - y1 = m(x -x1) y - 9 = 2*(x-0) y - 9 = 2x +9 +9 y = 2x + 9
