Help, write an equation...?

Write an equation in standard form for a line that is (a) parallel (b) perpendicular to the line with an equation of 5 3 − = x y that passes through the point (8, 5).   

Update:

i wrote the equation wrong, it's y=3x-5

    y = 3x - 5

    There is no general agreement on the meaning of standard form. This is what I would call standard form for that same line:

    3x - y = 5

    The parallel line through (8, 5):

    3x - y = 3(8) - (5)

    3x - y = 19

    The parallel line through (8, 5):

    x + 3y = (8) + 3(5)

    x + 3y = 23

    You'll need to clean up the equation.  I can tell you that a parallel line shares the same slope as the original line, and for a perpendicular one, you flip the slope.

      I wrote the equation wrong, it's actually y=3x-5
