(1/2)y = (1/2)x - 9

To find the slope for the line first we need to rewrite the equation using the slope form:

y= mx + b

m is the slope:

==> (1/2)y = (1/2)x - 9

Mutiply the equation by 2:

==> y= x - 18

Now the equation...

(1/2)y = (1/2)x - 9

To find the slope for the line first we need to rewrite the equation using the slope form:

y= mx + b

m is the slope:

==> (1/2)y = (1/2)x - 9

Mutiply the equation by 2:

==> y= x - 18

Now the equation is in the slope form:

==> The slope m = 1

Since the required line is parallel to the given line, then the slopes are equals.

**==> the required slope is also m = 1**
