Get in slope intercept form. 3X + 5Y = 15 5Y = -3X + 15 Y = -3/5X + 3 -3/5 is the slope of this line and the line parallel to this line

The whole line 'shifts up' by two units, and is parallel to the original line (same slope)

I assume the question should be y = -2x + 5? The equation of a line that is parallel to that line is any line that begins 7 = -2x ... after the -2x any number may be added or subtracted. Parallel lines have the same slope. In the original equation, the slope is -2.

The slope of the perpendicular is -(1/2) .

The slope of any line parallel to this line is the same as the slope of the line itself, by the definition of "parallel" 7x + 9y = 6 can be rewritten as y =(6 - 7x)/9. To find the slope of such a line, select two distinct values of x denoted x1 and x2, then calculate the corresponding values y1 and y2. The slope will then be equal to (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1). For example, if x1 is zero, y1 = 6/9 = 2/3. If x2 is one, y2 = -(1/9). The slope is therefore: (- 1/9 - 2/3)/(1 - 0) = - (7/9).

If it is parallel, it must have the same slope of the original line which is -5.

It equals the slope of the line y = -x. That's a pretty darn strong hint right there is what that is.

The graph of [ y = 4x + 2 ] is a straight line with a slope of 4.Any line with a slope of 4 is parallel to that one, and any line parallel to that one has a slope of 4.

Minus one half, (-1/2).

Y = -2x + 5 so the slope of this equation, along with the slopes of parallel equations, is -2

-3/5 or -0.6

Get in slope intercept form. 3X + 5Y = 15 5Y = -3X + 15 Y = -3/5X + 3 -3/5 is the slope of this line and the line parallel to this line

If you mean -x+y = 12 then y = x+12 and so the parallel line will have the same slope but with a different y intercept.
