Find the equation of the line parallel to y = −x + 5 that goes through the point (9, −1). Homework Help ✎

Parallel lines have equal slopes. Use y = mx + b where m = slope of the given line.

Use the given point to find the y-intercept.

$-1=-\frac{1}{3}(9)+\textit{b}$

$\textit{y}=-\frac{1}{3}\textit{x}+2$
