Work Step by Step

You have (0,0) parallel to y=$\frac{2}{3}$x+1.Since parallel lines have the same slope, the slope for the other line is also $\frac{2}{3}$.Use the slope and (0,0) to find the y-intercept: y=mx+b 0=$\frac{2}{3}$(0)+b 0=0+b 0=b There is no y-intercept so the equation would be y=$\frac{2}{3}$x.
