Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The given line has equation: y = 2x + 3 That means the slope is 2. The parallel line also has slope 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The parallel line has equation y = 2x + b Now we need to find b. We use the given point for x and y and solve for b. 1 = 2(2) + b 1 = 4 + b 5 = b Since b = 5, the equation of the parallel line is y = 2x  5
