    y = 5x + 3 y = 1 over 5x + 3 y = −5x + 3 y = −1 over 5x + 3

    is it a because its following the y=mx+b format?

    in the y=mx+b format the 'm' tells oyu the slope parallel lines have the SAME slope (the 'b' value does not affect whether they are parallel) So look at all the answers and find one that has the same value for m as y =5x − 2

    the original equation is y =5x − 2 c is y = -5x +3 in the format y = mx+b do they have the SAME value for m?

    look at the original equation y =5x − 2 now look at the format y = mx + b what is the value of m in the original equation?? what is the value for b in the original equation?

    Do that for all the answers ONE of them has the SAME value of m as the equation above That is your answer
