    A. y = 3x + 7 B. y = 1 over 3x + 7 C. y = −3x + 7 D. y = −1 over 3x +

    The line which have slope same as that of line IJ will be parallel to IJ.

    The quation of line is given by y = mx + c where m = slope

    You can also just find a formula with the exact same slope

    [-3]x-8 [-3] is the same slope
