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.

**Damon**, Sunday, November 10, 2013 at 11:52pmy = 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
