Using a graphing calc would be easiest, or you can draw it on a sheet of paper but make sure you include grid lines.
Plot the points A( 4, 2), B(2, 4), C(7, 1), and D( 5, 3) into STAT, 1. EDIT as a list of L1 and L2. L1 for X and L2 for Y values. [ make sure STAT PLOT is on and use the second plot type, which connects the dots essentially. you'll see that the figure has two and only TWO parallel lines,
(-4, 2) (2, 4) and (-5, -3) (7, 1) these are the bases. Drawing this by hand will also show that.

A line has a slope of –3 and a y-intercept of (0, –1). What is the equation of the line that is parallel to the given line and passes through the point (–3, 1)?
A line has a slope of 3 and a y-intercept of (0, 1). The equation of the line that is parallel to the given line and passes through the point ( 3, 1) is y = -3x - 8 User:
The equation of a line is y = 2x – 1. What is the equation of the line that is parallel to the first line and passes through (–4, 1)?
