Someone help on some Algebra plz!
Okay I have the y intercept form of the equation ie y = m x + b how would I find the y intercept form of a line parrell to y = m x + b like say

y = 2 x + 3

I need to find the y int equation of the line parralel to that equation and it passes through x,y

How would I find that? Anyone know what im talking about?
-= Double Post =-
Let me give an example, (off the top of my head do not try to solve!)

Given the equation y = 3 x + 1 and the line parralel to it passes through 5,7 what is the y intercept equation for the parralel line?

all parallel lines have the same slope *hint*

yup they do. then u just gotta take the m outta the first one and theres ur slope and then from there figure out where the other one is based on the point it passes through.

Ok thanks for the help. I got it. So the m is the same I just need b.

So basically you want us to do your homework for you?
Sure if you dont mind, I can pm you it I also need an essay on the Holocaust lol.

EDIT : No Im in 9th, Im in Algebra 2 we are doing a review and I forgot this stuff.

When you have the slope just change the y intercept so when you plot the points it goes thru 5,7.

You guys take Algebra in 6th grade?

We don't take it until 9th grade where I live, 8th grade if you are smart(I took it..but failed the fourth quarter, but now...I'm amazing in math!)

I took it in 7th grade, but we started learning slope intercept in 6th. Private school honors class ftw.

Meh. Im in geometry and im in 8th and i took algebra in 7th as well. I go to a charter school that doesnt cost *insert outrageous amount here* a month to go to.

i took algebra in 8th only to learn my teacher wasn't qualified and the class didn't count so i retook it in 9th grade but the teacher quit for the 2nd semester and the school couldn't find another one so i took the 2nd semester in summer school.... lam....
