" parallel to y=-5 and through (2,7)"
The point's coordinates should be the ordered pair (2,7).
Any line parallel to y=-5 is a horizontal line of the form y=k, where k is a constant, -5, or 7.
Since the given point is (2,7), the value of k is 7.
Thus the line parallel to y=-5 passing through (2,7) is
y=7
