Give the equation of the line that passes through (5,1) and is parallel to the line y=1/4x

the 1/4 is the SLOPE. You have a POINT. By definition, in order to be PARALLEL, two lines must have the SAME SLOPE. Is there some specified form for your final answer equation? There is only one formula that I can think of that would work in this case. . .
