    Analytic geometry help?

    Question:
    For the given equation,find it's new equation if the origin is translated to the new origin as indicated.
    3x+y-5=0  ;  O'(2,3)

    Attempt:
     x=x'+2
     y=y'+3
     3(x'+2)+(y'+3)-5=0
     3x'+6+y'+3-5=0
     3x'+y'=-4

    Am I correct?

    thank you
