    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.
