Expert Answer

Step 1

Given line is:

 

Equation of a line in slope-intercept form is y = mx + c, where m is the slope and c is the intercept.

 

Comparing to the given equation, slope and y – intercept are given by:

Step 2

When two lines are parallel, the slopes will be equal.

Hence, the slope of a line parallel to the given line is:
