Ashley,

Same thing here. Knowing the general form is key.

The slope-intercept form is y = mx + b, where m is the slope

and b is the y intercept. You also need to know that all parallel lines

the same slope.

The given line: y = 2x - 3, is in slope intercept form, so we know that its

slope = 2. And from the given point (0, 5), we know that b = 5.
