$$\blue{\textsf{\textbf{Question:-}}}$$

What is the equation of the line parallel to y=-5x-9 and contains the point (-3, -3)?

$$\blue{\textsf{\textbf{\underline{\underline{Answer and How to Solve:-}}}}$$

First of all, parallel lines have the exact same slope.

So we know the slope of the line:- -5.

(enter -5, It's the number that belongs in the green box)

Well, since we're given the slope and a point that the line intersects, we can write the line's equation in point-slope form:-

y-y1=m(x-x1)

y-(-3)=-5(x-(-3)

y+3=-5(x+3)

y+3=-5x-15

y=-5x-18

Good luck.
