Can someone please show me how to find an equation for the line with the given properties.
Parellel to the lines 3xy= 3;
containing the point (0,0)
y=
(then type your answer in slope intercept form)

If the new line is parallel to 3xy = 3 it must differ only in the constant.
So the new equation is
3x  y = c
but (0,0) lies on it, so
3(0)  0 = c
c = 0
new equation :
3x  y = 0
or
y = 3x
