the x axis is horizontal line.....a horizontal line has a slope of 0. A parallel line will have the same slope.
A horizontal line is represented by x = a number...with that number being the y coordinate of ur points. So ur parallel equation is : y = 5.....but we need it in standard form.....0x + y = 5
