    If it's parallel, then it will have the same slope. After that, substitute in the x point and then change the b value until it gets the y value.

    so the slope would be -3 or 1/3?

    If it's the same as -3, then it would be -3

    Ok and I the "b" value I got 3 but the choices give 7 too?

    What are your choices? And 3 would be the correct b value.

    y = 1/3x + 7 y= -3x + 3 y = 1/3x + 3 y = -3x + 7

    y=-3x+3 should be the answer. Do you have a graphing calculator?
