# How do you write an equation in standard form for a line passing through (–4, 2) and is parallel to y = –x + 6?

##### 1 Answer

All lines parallel to

In our case all lines parallel to

The condition that our line should pass through

Therefore, the equation of a line we are looking for is

It passes through

It also parallel to

Graphs of these two equations are:

graph{-x+6 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

graph{-x-2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
