Write a slopeintercept equation of the line whose graph is described
Parallel to the graph of 3x + 2y = 5; yintercept (0, −1)

The given line is not vertical (coefficient of y is nonzero), so we can find the slope of the given line.
The given line can be rewritten in slope intercept form (y on the left) as:
3x+2y=5
y=1.5x+2.5 ...(1)
Any line parallel to (1) would have the same coefficient of x (1.5) and the yintercept (2.5) could vary.
From the yintercept (1), we form the required line:
y=1.5x1
