4x + y - 2 = 0 y = -4x + 2....slope here is -4. A parallel line will have the same slope. y = mx + b slope(m) = -4 (4,-3)...x = 4 and y = -3 now we sub and find b, the y int -3 = -4(4) + b -3 = -16 + b -3 + 16 = b 13 = b so ur parallel equation is : y = -4x + 13 but we need it in standard form y = -4x + 13....add 4x to both sides 4x + y = 13 <== standard form
