## anonymous 4 years ago Write the equation of the line that is parallel to the line y = −3x + 12 and passes through the point (−1, 6). y = x + 7 y = −3x + 3 y = x + 3 y = −3x + 7

What do you know about the new line? Parallel lines have the same slope. You also have a given point. Slope -3 Point (−1, 6) Use Point-Slope form. $y - y1 = m(x - x1)$y - 6 = -3(x - (-1)) y - 6 = -3(x + 1) $Distribute$y - 6 = -3x - 3 $Add\quad 6$y = -3x + 3
