'L' has y-intercept (0,-3) and is parallel to the line with equation y=2/3x+1.

(Instructions - write the equation of the line 'L' satisfying the given geometric conditions)

We know that two lines that are parallel must have the same slope. So this line must have the slope (2/3), like the other liner equation.

Then use the equation

y= mx +b

You have the slope now and the y-inercept is given.

so...

the equation is

'L' = (2/3)x - 3
