Parallel lines have equal slope. The slope of the line given is 1/2 (y = mx + b where m is the slope). Now use the point-slope form, y - y_{1} = m(x - x_{1}) where (x_{1}, y_{1}) is the point given in the problem. So,

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

Reducing this,

y - 3 = 1/2x - 2

y = 1/2x + 1

so, I also need to graph this. where would I put the points on the graph?10/23/20
