Find the equation of a line passing through the point (1,2) and making an angle 13 degrees with the xaxis.

To be given this kind of question means that you must have learned that the slope of a line is equal to the tangent of the angle that the line makes with the xaxis.
so tan 13º = .2309
then y2 = .2309(x+1)
take it from there
