Maybe you would get more help if you thanked people for their answers.

Interacting with people (as well) would be even more appreciated.

So far you have not responded to a single answer.

$$x+3y=-5$$

$$3y=-x-5$$

$$y=-\frac{1}{3}x-\frac{5}{3}$$

so the slope of the line that is parallel to $$x+3y=-5$$ is $$-\frac{1}{3}$$

Using point-slope form, we have:

$$y+7=-\frac{1}{3}(x-2)$$

$$y=-\frac{1}{3}x-\frac{19}{3}$$

$$3x+3y=-19$$

then, you multiply A and B by -3/19. obviously, B-A will equal 0.
