A line has a slope of 6 that passes through the point (12,5).
What is the equation of the line?
a. 6x + y = 77 < or C?
b. 6x + y = 67
c.6x + y = 77
d.6x + y = 17

Of the two choices, only a) and b) have a slope of 6
(12,5) does not satisfy a) but it does satisfy b)
so b)posted by Reiny

you just need to remember your pointslope form of a line, and you get
y5 = 6(x+12)
Then just rearrange as needed.posted by Steve
