# What is the slope of a line parallel to the line whose equation is y - x = 5?

**Solution:**

We know that parallel lines contain a slope

If we determine the slope of y - x = 5, we will have a slope of any line which is parallel to it.

In order to find the slope,

Write the equation in the form y = mx + b

Where m is the slope

y - x = 5

y = (1)x + 5

The slope of the given equation is 1. Any line parallel to this line will also have the same slope because the slopes of the parallel lines are equal.

Therefore, the slope of a line parallel to the line whose equation is y - x = 5 is 1.

## What is the slope of a line parallel to the line whose equation is y - x = 5?

**Summary:**

The slope of a line parallel to the line whose equation is y - x = 5 is 1.
