I will work the first one for you, and you try the second one.

-6x + y = -1

It is convenient to express this in the form

y = mx + b

y = 6x - 1

If parallel, it must have the same slope.

m = 6

So far, we have

y = 6x + b

Use the given point to find b.

7 = 6(1) + b

b = 7 - 6 = 1

**y = 6x + 1**
