the equation given has a slope of 2/3. A parallel line will have the same slope. y = mx + b slope(m) = 2/3 (1,-2)...x = 1 and y = -2 sub and find b, the y int -2 = 2/3(1) + b -2 = 2/3 + b -2 - 2/3 = b -6/3 - 2/3 = b - 8/3 = b equation is : y = 2/3x - 8/3...but we need it in standard form y = 2/3x - 8/3 -2/3x + y = -8/3...multiply by -3 2x - 3y = 8 <== standard form
