### Example Question #471 : Equations Of Lines

Find the slope of a line parallel to a line with the equation:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

When finding the slope of a parallel line, the slope will be the same as the other equation given.

In order to determine the slope from an equation we need to make sure that it is written in the following format:

If the equation of a line is written in the slope-intercept form, then is slope and is the y-intercept.

In this case, the slop is . This is also the slope of the parallel line.

### Example Question #472 : Equations Of Lines

Find the slope of a line parallel to a line with the equation:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

When finding the slope of a parallel line, the slope will be the same as the other equation given.

In order to determine the slope from an equation we need to make sure that it is written in the following format:

If the equation of a line is written in the slope-intercept form, then is slope and is the y-intercept.

In this case, we need to convert the equation into slope-intercept form.

Subtract from both sides.

Divide both sides by .

Rewrite.

Identify the slope.

The slope is or . This is also the slope of the parallel line.
