Arrange given line into   y = mx+b    form  to find slope , m

    m = -2/5    parallel slope is the same

 

Here is your new line equation in POINT-SLOPE form

(y-1) = -2/5 (x-4)        now re-arrange this into y = mx + b form

 

 

A second method:

new line is slope intercept form:

   y = -2/5 x + b     sub in the point given

   1 = -2/5 (4) + b      solve this for 'b'

     then your new line is    y = -2/5 x + b
