Determine the equation of a line that passes through A(2,3) and is parallel to the line defined by 3x-2y+12=0.

PLEASE HELP EXAM TOMORRW!

y1 = m1x + C1

y2 = m2x + C2

the lines to be parallel: m1=m2

Line 1 passes through (2; 3):

y1=m1x + C1

3 = 2m1 +C1

line two:

3x-2y+12 = 0

-2y=-3x-12

y=3/2x + 4 m2 = 3/2

m1=m2=3/2

line 1:

3=2*3/2 + C1

3=3 + C1

C1=0

equation:

y=3/2x
