    u get -1/3 because the product of slopes of perpendicular lines is -1 so x*3=-1 so x=-1/3

    all lines that are parallel to that one are related to: y = 3x we need to adjust the given point (3,-2) so that it is the origin (0,0) (3-3,-2+2) but we need to do this to not only this one point, but ALL the points (x,y) on the line (x-3,y+2) now we can use this in our related equation: (y+2) = 3(x-3) and simplify to your hearts content
