Question

# A line passes through the point (5,6) and is parallel to the line given by the equation y = 2x - 12. Which of these is an equation for the line? O A. y-5=-264-6) B. y - 6 = -2(x - 5) C. y + 6 = 2(x + 5) D. Y- 6 = 2(x - 5)

Answer

D. Y- 6 = 2(x - 5)

- Find the slope of the given line y=2x-12. A: The slope is 2.
- Use the point-slope form of the equation to find the equation of the line with the given slope passing through the point (5,6). A: The equation is y - 6 = 2(x - 5), which is option D.
