Find the equation of the line with the given information.
I know how to do this when given (x1,y1) & (x2,y2) but the given information is:
Through (2,-5) and parallel to y=3.
Can someone please explain the process to me?

And also for this given information:
x-intercept=3
y-intercept=-2

You know the slope is zero (from parallel to y=3). So it must be of the form

y= 0x + c
putting in (2.-5) yields c asss -5

y= -5 is the line.
