Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Parallel lines have the same slope. So first, find out the slope of 2x + y = 8, by putting it in y = mx + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So the slope is 2 Now we're given the points (2, 1) So slope = 2 Points = (2, 1) Plug those into: y  y1 = m(x  x1) Where y1 and x1 are points and m is the slope
