# How do you write an equation of a line going through (2,8) parallel to y=3x-2?

##### 1 Answer

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

the equation in the problem is in slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

Therefore

Because the lines are parallel, by definition, the two lines will have the same slope.

We can substitute the slope into the equation to begin writing the equation for the line going through point

We can now substitute the values from the point in the problem for

We can now substitute
