# How do you write the equation of the line passing through #( 3, - 2)# and parallel to : #x + 7y - 5 = 0#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

We first find the slope of the original line, then use our slope and point to find our equation.

**Slope-intercept** form is a way of writing your linear equation. It is of the form

If two lines are parallel, then they have the same slope. Our given equation is

Now we use slope-intercept form again to find our new equation given our point

Thus, our desired equation is

Our final answer is
