    Determine Equation of Line

    Determine an equation of the following line.

    The line parallel to x+3=0 and passing through (-6, -7)

    How would I solve this if there's no y variable? Please help, thanks.

    Equation of the line parallel to x + 0*y + 3= 0 is x + 0*y + c = 0

    Put the values of x and y i.e. (-6, -7) and find c.
