    Answer to this question is y = 1/2x + 4. How do you find this?
    'Line A has equation y = 1/2x + 1.
    Line B is parallel to line A.
    Work out an equation for line B.'

    Basically using the formula y=mx+c, to create a parallel line you have to keep the m value the same which is 1/2x then you can use any value for c (the y intercept value) to make a parallel line. In this case it’s +4 but it could be any number as long as the m value (1/2x) is kept the same (hopefully this makes sense 😅)
