The length of a spring is a linear function of the mass of the object hanging from it. For a particular spring, the length was 12 centimeters when a 2-kg mass was attached to it. When a 5-kg mass was hung from it, it stretched to a length of 18 cm. Which equation relates the length of this spring, y, to the number of kilograms hung from it, x?
