Two different lines are parallel if they have the same slope.

The slope of the line y = -3x - 4 is -3.

Using the point-slope form of the equation of a line gives

y - 6 = -3(x - 2) .

The slope-intercept form is y = -3x + 12.

Another way to solve the problem is let y = -3x + b and determine b from the given point.
