Find the parametric Equations of the line through the point (3,-2) and parallel to v = (3,1,-2)

Is the answer going to be

(x-3,y+2,z) = (3t,1t,-2t)

x = 3+3t

y = -2 + 1t

z = -2t

OR

z = -$\displaystyle z_0$ - 2t

the question does not give a z coordinate, that is why i am confused. it just says point (3,-2)
