What is the equation of the line that has a y-intercept 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.

    However, the answer is (A)

    Thank you, Steve

  • Algebra -

    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
