Choose the equation of a line that is parallel to y = 3x - 2 and passes through the point (-1,-6).

y = 3x + 3

y = 3x - 3

y = (-1/3)x + 19/3

y = (-1/3)x - 19/3

*i think it's the last one!

The slope must be 3. That is the "m" term in the form

y = m x + b

So the correct answer must be one of the first two. Plug in x = -1 to both of the first two equations and see which one gives you y = -6. That will be the equation that passes through the (-1, -6) point.
