I have to get this weekend homework done quick! My parents come home in about 6 hours and it HAS to be done before that! I'm suppose to "Write the slope-intercept form of an equation of the line that passes through the given point and is parallel to the graph of each equation." I really don't understand the y=mx+b formula and I know it has a big part in the problems. I'm given a line and the slope-intercept equation of it and I think my teacher said all it was for is to take the slope from it and then use the two coordinates given (-2,-3) to plug in and have a line parallel to the first one. If someone can explain to me where the numbers go in the formula, I should be able to work the other problems. Here is #1: y=2x-1 and the given point is (-2,-3). So where does 2,-2,and -3 go in the y=mx=b formula??

You need more tools in your bag of tricks.
