A line parallel to this one would have a slope of **3**.

**Explanation:**

When trying to figure out the slope of a line it's a good idea to put the equation into "slope-intercept" form, which:

#y=mx+b#

wheremis the slope andbis the y intercept.

In this case, the equation

Parellel lines have the same slope, so any other line with slope 3 is parallel to this line.
