Can someone please show me how to find an equation for the line with the given properties.

Parellel to the lines 3x-y= -3;
containing the point (0,0)

y=
(then type your answer in slope intercept form)

  • pre-cal -

    If the new line is parallel to 3x-y = -3 it must differ only in the constant.
    So the new equation is
    3x - y = c
    but (0,0) lies on it, so
    3(0) - 0 = c
    c = 0

    new equation :
    3x - y = 0
    or
    y = 3x
