13. The line that represents the right boundary of a street is shown on the grid at the right. a. What is the equation of the left boundary, which is parallel to the right boundary, and passes through point L(200, 100)?

b. Graph the left boundary.

Rewrite each equation in slope intercept form. Then determine whether the lines are parallel. Explain.
