write an equation of a line that passes through ( -3,-5) and is parallel to the line y = 3x -1 how do you do this and can you show me step by step how you did it? thank you!
If two lines are paralle then their slopes are equal.
since given equation y=3x-1 and required line are parallel therefore
slope of required line=3 and
required line passes through (-3,-5)
Thus equation of line is
Thus the line passes through (-3,-5) and parallel to y=3x-1 is y=3x+4 .
