Write an equation in slope-intercept from for the parallel to y=3x-2 that passes through the point (5,-2). Type your equation in form y=mx+b

Parallel lines have the same slope so the second line must have a slope of 3. We then have y=3x+b. We plug in the given point to find b.

 

y=3x+b

-2=3(5)+b

-2=15+b

b=-17

 

Therefore the equation is y=3x-17.
