# How do you the equation of the line that is parallel to the line y = 3x +2 and passes through the point (5, 2)?

$y = 3 x - 13$
The slope($S$) of the two parallel line will be the same $S = 3$
So the other line would be $y = 3 x + k$, bring in (5, 2) to solve $k$
$2 = 3 \cdot 5 + k \to k = - 13 \to y = 3 x - 13$
