Which choice could be the equation of a line parallel to the line represented by this equation?
7x− 12y = −32
A. y = 12/7x  3
B. y = 7/12x + 5
C. y = 7/12x  9
D. y = 7x  12
can someone please give me a stepbystep on how to do this? i'm having a bit of trouble understanding. :c i'm sure it's a lot simpler than i think it is.
