Which line set of points are part of a line that is parallel to the line y = (-⅔)x ­ + 1

y=(-2/3)x+1

Parallel lines in a set of plane have the same slope. Therefore a line parallel to this(above equation) has a slope of -2/3

To get the set of points  we get a random value of x say x=3 and we find

the value of y using the equation above

y=(-2/3)*3+1

y=-2+1

y=1

Therefore one point is (3,1)

To get another point take another value of x randomly as 9

Therefore

y=(-2/3*9)+1

y=-6+1

y=5

The other point is (9,5)

The points of a line parallel to y=(-2/3)x+1 are

(3,1),(9,5)

To get more points you use the same method.

Sorry Resell the answer i gave you previously has some wrong value! The values of y are -1 and -5 respectively, I just miscalculated the values! The points should be (3,-1) and (9,-5) respectively.
