sorry! can you please give me the calculations!
At the x intercept y=0. So,
Hence, the x intercept of the line is -2.
2) The given line is y-3=3(x+1)
Expressing it in the slope intercept form gives:
Hence, its slope,m=3.
The point slope form of the parallel line is:
Here, `(x_1,y_1)=(0,-2)` and` m=3.`
Plugging in the values we get:
Therefore, the equation of the parallel line in the standard form is:
