Find the equation of the line that is parallel to the line 4x - 2y = 8 and which passes through the point (0,-8).
4x - 2y = 8 re-arrnge to
y = 2x -4 slope , m = 2 parallel slope is the same m = 2
point slope form of new line through 0, -8
y - - 8 = 2 (x -0)
y = 2x - 8 ( could have just changed the y intercept to -8 to get this result with a little less calc)
