Write an equation in slope-intercept form, if possible, for each line.
1. The line through (0, -2) that is parallel to the line y = -1/3x + 6.
2. The line through (0, 4) with slope -1/2.
y = mx + b is the form you need.
Slope is m in this case and b is the intercept for the line in question.
1. Since the line ...
The equations of the lines are found.
