    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 place the numbers there.

    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.

    @beautifulgirl, you have parallel confused with perpendicular

    parallel lines have the same slope

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