    Parallel lines have the same slope as the other line.

    Change your line to slope y-intercept format.

    But the line has to pass through the point 9,-3 at the same time. Thats whats confusing me.

    What is the slope of your line though? Do you recognize that?

    Change your line to y=mx+b format.

    so then it is 3y = -2x + 5

    It would be 3y=-2x+5

    It's just 5/3 .

    So just replace the 3 with 5/3
