Select the equation of the line parallel to the equation y = -3x - 5 that passes through the point (1, 2). y = -3x + 5 y = -3x + 6 y = -3x - 3 y = 3x - 1 @animegirl

    you know parallel lines have the same slope you you can find the same slope from the given line with the points (1,2) and (x,y) to find the equation of the other line

    that's not the definition we need. the definition we need involves slopes. see if you can find it

    @triciaal kind of provided the needed definition... but here: Parallel lines have equal slopes.

    so what must be the slope of the line we want to find?

    ? what is the equation of the given line? what form is it in? do you know the forms?
