Steph has a line drawn on her paper with the equation y = 4x  3. She wants to draw a line parallel to the given line, but through the point (2, 2). Describe, in words, the steps she needs to go through to find the equation of this new line.

Damon,
slope of both lines = m = 4
find a line of form y =4 x + b through (2,2) by substituting 2 for x and 2 for y and solving for b

Petra needs to find the equation of a line through (–2, 3) that is parallel to the line represented by y = 2x– 4. Which equation best represents Petra's equation?
