Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (-3, 1) and parallel to y = -x - 4. y = x + 2 y = -x - 2 y = -x + 4 y = x - 4

    hint: your answer will have a slope of -1 since y = -x-4 has a slope of -1 parallel lines have the same slope

    y = -x - 2 1 = -(-3) - 2... plug in (-3,1) 1 = 3 - 2 1 = 1 So this shows that (-3, 1) is on the line y = -x-2
