    Hi,

    Line CD has equation 3x+2y-1

    What is the equation of the line parallel to CD passing through point (-1,3) in the form px+qy=r?


    I don't understand the notation of the form

    There's nothing to "understand"! They just want you to write down another equation for the new line in the same form as the equation you're given for line CD

    EDIT because TSR broke on me!!

    You should have an equals sign somewhere in your "equation" for line CD
