Write an equation for the line that passes through point (-5, 3) and is parallel to the x-axis.
a.)y = -5
b.)x = 3
c.)y = 3

• Geometry HELP -

I think I figured this answer is
y=-5

• Geometry HELP -

If the line passes through (-5,3) and is parallel to the x-axis, the y-intercept (b) is 3, and the slope (m) is zero.

Using the standard formula,
y=mx+b, and putting in m=0 and b=3, you will find the equation required among the given choices.
