What is the equation of the line that is parallel to the given line and has an x-intercept of –3?
The easiest way to answer this kind of problem is to use point slope form. (y-y1= k(x-x1) To make the new line parallel to the original, use the same slope and form your equation. The slope of the original equation is 2/3. Use the x intercept to figure out the y point which is 0. The answer is y-0=2/3(x+3)
