Answer:
y =7x + 17
Stepbystep explanation:
7xy=8
y = 7x  8......convert to slope intercept form
m = 7
parallel lines have the same slope
put in point slope form using the points of the equation of the line that you want to find
y  3 = 7(x+2)
y 3 = 7x + 14.........distribute
y = 7x +14 + 3.........add 3 to both sides
y = 7x +17................simplify
