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 step-by-step 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.
