x + 3y = - 5

3y = -x -5

y = -1/3 x - 5/3 slope = - 1/3 parallel slope is the same - 1/3

point slope form

(y-2) = - 1/3 ( x - -7)

y -2 = - 1/3 x - 7/3

y = - 1/3 x - 1/3 multiply by 3 to get rid of the fractions

3 y = -x -1 re-arrange

3y + x = -1 now multiply by -3

- 9y - 3x = 3 take it from here
