Hi!

Since we know that **parallel lines have the same slope, **we know that the slope of the line we are interested in is 2. Therefore, we are after a line defined by the equation,

y = 2x + c

and we know that it **must pass through (4,4)** so we can solve for c as follows,

4 = 2*4 + c

4 = 8 + c

c = -4

so the equation of the line we are after is

**y = 2x -4**
