    equation of parallel line

    find the equation of a line which is parallel to the line who's equation is y-2x-13=0 and passes through the points (2 7)

    for a parallel line m1 = m2

    this is what i have done to get the equation of the line..

    y-y1=m (x-x1)
    y-7=2(x-2)
    y-7=2x-4
    y=2x+3

    is this correct?
