Answer:y = – 2x + 17

Step-by-step explanation:The equation of a line in slope- intercept form is

y = mx + c ( m is the slope and c the y- intercept )

Here m = – 2, then

y = – 2x + c ← is the partial equation

To find c substitute (6, 5) into the partial equation

5 = – 12 + c ⇒ c = 5 + 12 = 17

y = – 2x + 17 ← equation of line
