Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0standard form of slope intercept line is y = mx + b where m = slope and b = yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now as its parallel to y =  x + 5 the lines slope is the same so what is the slope of y = x + 5  compare it with the standard equation y = mx + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 is the slope so we can now write the equation in the for y = x + b now we have to find the value of b we know that the point (4,6) lies on the line which means that x = 4 and y=6 satisfies the equation so to find the value of b we plug in these values 6 = 4 + b
