are you sure the matching equation is 6+2y=5?

thats much better
Okay so first you want to put it into slope intercept form which is y=mx+b

okay so 2y=-6x+5 correct?

start by subtracting 6x from both sides as it is a positive value which gives you

2y=5-6x or 2y=-6x+5
then you divide both sides by 2 to isolate the y
y=(-6x+5)/2
or
y=-3x+(5/2)

correct because b is your 7 intercept and a parallel line has the same slope
