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.

That's okay.
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
@ryan123345 : let him do the work please.
Oh. He already posted.
Okay now divide by 3.
Because we want the format: y=mx+b
We have 3y.
Y= - 2/3x+ 3
Okay but 5/3 is not 3.
It's just 5/3 .
So just replace the 3 with 5/3
Now do you see what the slope is?
Ok now i got it. Thank you!
Okay then. You are welcome :) .
