y = 3x -1 is graphed. you have a parallel line that gose thru point 2,0. what is the equation for the other line.

    parallel lines are lines of the same slope

    use the point slope form using the same slope as given with the points it goes through

    If you know point-slope, then you can plug everything in and solve. So with this one it would be: y-0=3(x-2)

    so knowing that your slope is 3 from the first y-intercept form equation of y=3x-1 you can use it in the point-slope form to look for the equation of the other line\[y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\]

    Then you would add 0 to both sides(nothing will change). Then distribute. After you distribute, you will get the answer. Try it and I will tell you if you are correct.
