Because you want a parallel line, the x and y coefficients (4, 2, respectively) will stay the same.

4(-3) + 2(5) = -12 + 10 = -2

4(-3) + 2(5) = -12 + 10 = -2

**The equation for your line is 4x + 2y = -2**4(-3) + 2(5) = -12 + 10 = -2

Write the equation of the line parallel to the line 4x + 2y = 5 and passing through the point (-3,5).
