How do you write an equation for the line that is parallel to the given line and that passes through the given point: y=3x;(3,0)
I know how to do this using pointslope form, but not with slope intercept form..

very simple
your new equation must be
y = 3x + b , (the slope has to be the same, so the 3x part stays the same)
sub in the given point (3,0)
0 = 3(3) + b
b = 9
so y = 3x + 9
