What is the equation of the line that has a yintercept of 5 and is parallel to the line represented by the equation below?
2x  y = 16
A. y = 2x + 5
B. y = 2x + 5
C. y = 1/2x  5
D. y = 1/2x  5
I guessed B for this one, but another choice of mine was A. I'm not sure which one to pick.

y = 2 x  16 is original so slope = 2
y = 2 x + b
when x = 0, y = 5
so
y = 2 x + 5 which is A
