Help !!!
Write an equation of a line that passes through the point (3, 2) and is parallel to the line y = 3x  4
y = 3x + 7
y = 3x  7
y =1/3 x + 2
y =1/3 x  2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Point slope form = \( \huge y – y_1 = m(x – x_1)\) Put the point (3, 2) into that equation. \( \huge y – y_1 = m(x – x_1)\) \( \huge y – 2 = m(x – 3)\) Since we know it is going to be parallel, we know that it is going to have the same slope of y = 3x  4. The slope is 3 so we have \( \huge y – 2 = 3(x – 3)\) Now transfor this \( \huge y – 2 = 3(x – 3)\) into yintercept form y = mx + b Can you finish ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are on the right track. \( \huge y – 2 = 3(x – 3)\) Now distribute the 3 in the () \( \huge y – 2 = 3(x – 3)\) \( \huge y 2 = 3x  9\) Now add 2 to each side of the equation. \( \huge y 2 + 2 = 3x 9 + 2 \) Can you finish?.
