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.
