## Answers ( )

Answer:y=1/2x–7Step-by-step explanation:since they are parallel, their slope(m) must be the same. since they are in the slope-intercept form y=mx+b just substitute the slope and x and y values

-3 = 1/2(8) + b

-3 = 4 + b

b = -7

plug this back into your original equation

y = mx+b

y = 1/2x -7
