# How do you write the equation of a line in point slope form that is parallel to y=3x-9 and goes through (-5,-4)?

$y - {y}_{0} = m \left(x - {x}_{0}\right)$
Where $m$ is the slope, that is the same as the one of your given line (i.e. $m = 3$, they ar parallel so they have the same slope/inclination) and ${x}_{0} , {y}_{0}$ are the coordinates of your point (i.e. $\left(- 5 , - 4\right)$).
