y = x – 6 is this it?

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

16=2+K or 16=10

16=2+k
or k=14

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
\[y-y _{1}=m(x-x _{1})\]
I.e. y- 16=1(x-2)
I.e. y- 16=x-2
I.e. y=x-2 + 16
I.e. y=x+14
Which is the required eq of the line
