**x + 3y = 5**

**3y = -x + 5**

**y = -(1/3)x + 5/3**

**slope = -1/3 Parallel lines have the same slope.**

**Now, you have a point and a slope, so use the Point-Slope form of the equation of a line.**

**y - y**

_{1}= m(x - x_{1})**y - 4 = (-1/3)(x + 2)**

**y - 4 = (-1/3)x - 2/3**

**y = (-1/3)x + 3 1/3 Slope-intercept Form**

**(1/3)x + y = 10/3 Multiply both sides by 3.**

**x + 3y = 10 Standard form**

unfortunately the slope intercept was wrong.
