Step by step solution
STEP 1: - Solve for $y$ the equation given above and write it in slope intercept form: $y = mx + b$.
STEP 2: - Identify the slope $m_1$ of the line in step 1.
STEP 3: - Find the slope $m_2$ of the line parallel to the given line (parallel lines have equal slopes).
STEP 4: - Write the equation of the line in point slope form.
STEP 5: - Write the equation of the line in step 4 in slope intercept form.
