How do you write an equation of a translated line given the equation of the original line and both the translated and original lines on a graph??
Thanks in advance!!

2x+3x=?

You will need the equation of the original line, and a way to know where the translated line will go.
The destination is usually a point through which the translated line will pass, or the (perpendicular) distance between the two lines.
See if you can figure out the information and post it in a more concrete form.
Different data require different methods.
