How do you write the equation of the line parallel to y = 3x - 4 and passing through the point (-2, 5)?
Parallel lines have the same slopes.
The slope of the new line will have the same slope as the given line:
One point on the line is given,
The formula for slope is
If you have the slope and one point , substitute them into a formula which is based on the formula for slope given above.
Simplify to get the required equation of the line.
