Select the equation of the line parallel to the equation y=-4x-6 and that passes through the point (1, 2). y=4x+6 y= - 4x +6 y = -4x - 4 y= 3x -1

    here you just have to look at the slop of line which matches the given line because slop of parallel is same..

    this is the general equation y=mx+c here the coefficient of x is called slop ..

    now as there are two options with slop=-4 so we use the general formula to find equation by using given pionts x1=1 and y1=2 y-y1/x-x1=-4 y-2/x-1=-4 y-2=-4x+4 y=-4x+6 yes it's b
