Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (3, -2) and parallel to y = 3x - 6. y = 3x + 7 y = 3x - 11 y = -3x + 11 y = -3x - 12

    if you compare y= = 3x - 6. with y=mx+c you get m=3 so , slope =3 and parallel lines have same slope, so your required line will be of the form y=3x+b

    now just put x=3, y=-2 in y= 3x+b and find 'b'
