What is the equation of the line having the specified slope and contained the indicated point. M=3/5;(12,6)

Just use the good old pointslope form:
(y+6)/(x12) = 3/5
rearrange things as you will; one form of the equation is as good as another. 
Given: m = 3/5, P(12,6).
Y = mx + b,
Y = (3/5)12 + b = 6,
36/5 + b = 6,
b = 6 + 36/5,
b = 30/5 + 36/5 = 6/5.
Eq: Y = (3/5)x + 6/5.
