Answer:## 1/3

Step-by-step explanation:Note that any line parallel to the given line will have the same slope as the line given.

Given the equation of the line expressed as x – 3y =-27

Rewrite in standard form y = mx+c where m is the slope

x – 3y =-27

-3y = -x -27

Multiply through by -11

3y = x+27

Divide through by 3

y = 1/3 x + 9

Since the slope of the line is 1/3, hence the slope of a line parallel to the line is also 1/3
