Write an equation of the line that passes through the given point and is parrel to the given line.
1. (1,3) Y=2x+2
I'm thinking that you just plug in 1 and 3 for x and y.
So, 3=2(1)+2
Correct?
Please help me. :)
Thank you

Nope: Y=mx+ b is the general form. Plug in (1,3) to get
3=m+b
Now parallel means the same slope (y=2x+2, slope 2)
3=2+b
b=1
equation of line? y=2x1 
Thank you.
