Give the equation of the line that passes through point (1, 2) and is parallel to the line y + 6x 7 = 0.
I have a really have issues trying to figure these out so if I could get a step by step break down on how to solve this it would be great.

y  y1 = m(x  x1)
Any line parallel to the line y + 6x  7 = 0 must have the same slope  m.
The point (x1, y1) is given as (1, 2).
Now use the above equation to find the equation of the line.
