any line that is parallel to y=x+8 has an equation y=x+ k where k is some constant and it passes through (2,16)..put these number in place of x and y

Since the line is parallel to y = x + 8, equating it with y=mx+c we find slope m=1(since the coefficient of x is 1) Now line passes through point (2, 16) . Thus \[x_{1} =2, y _{1}=16\] Eq of line in slope point form is given as \[yy _{1}=m(xx _{1})\] I.e. y 16=1(x2) I.e. y 16=x2 I.e. y=x2 + 16 I.e. y=x+14 Which is the required eq of the line
