y = 2x+c and plug in your point to determine "c"

In order to find the parallel of any line simply flip over the mx or in this case 2x giving you y=1/2x+6. I presume...

plug in means ; use the (x,y) point given and plug in those values for x and y into the equation to determine a value for "c"

parallel is same slope; perp is flipped and negate slope

yea so the answer for the parallel would be 1/2x+6.

@hellllnowewon'tgo
line has slope 2, goes through (1,0) equation is
\[y=2(x1)\] or
\[y=2x2\]
