identify the equation of the line through (-1,-4) and parallel to y=-6x+4

i got y=6x+10

Isn't the slope of the original line from y=-6x+4 equal to -6. Your solution has a slope of +6. Are those two lines parallel?

i have to identify the equation of a line passing through points (-1,-4) and that is parallel to the line y=-6x+4

I think the point of my response is that your solution of y=6x+10 can't be parallel to y = -6x+4.
