Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

3x-4y-5=0

4y=3x-5

y=(3/4)x-5/4

Two non vertical lines are parallel if and only if their slopes are equal

so m=3/4

Point-Slope form of a line:

An equation of a line through a point (x1 , y1) with slope m is given by

y - y1 = m(x - x1)

we have

y-5=(3/4)*(x-(-3))

y-5=(3/4)*(x+3)

in general form y = mx + b

y-5=(3/4)x+9/4

y=(3/4)x+9/4+5

y=(3/4)x+29/4



Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
