Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it is parallel to the line 3x  y = 5, then it must have the same slope as that line: Let me rewrite your equation, so that it is easier for me to see the slope: 3x  y = 5, move 3x to the right hand side:  y =  5  3x, multiply thru by 1: y = 5 + 3x or y = 3x +5. This is in the form of y = Mx + b, where M = slope = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so now the formula of the line is: \[y  y _{1} = M ( x  x _{1})\] In your case: \[x_{1} = 1\] and \[y_{1} = 0\] ( 1 ; 0 )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you know that M = 3; x1 = 1 and y1 = 0. Plug these into the equation of a line above: y  ( 0 ) = 3 * ( x  (1) ) Simplify: y = 3x + 3 <=Your answer
