Write the equation of the line parallel to

Since parallel lines have the same slope, find the slope by rearranging the equation so that ____________.

**The Equation of a Line**

When given the slope of a line and one point on the line, we can write the equation of the line in **graphing form**. This is the translation of the origin of the line to the point

Sometimes, you will see the equation of a line also written in **point-slope form** as .
