Find the equation of the straight line passing through (3,2) and making an angle of 60 degree with the positive direction of yaxis

maths 
Reiny,
The slope of the line is the tan of the angle that the line makes with the xaxis
so if the line makes and angle of 60° with the yaxis , it will make an angle of 30° with the xaxis
so we have tan30° = 1/√3
equation:
y + 2 = (1/√3)(x3)
√3y + 2√3 = x  3
x  √3y = 2√3 + 3
change to whatever form of the equation that is needed.
