    Answer:

    x-2y=-12

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Hi there!

    1) Determine the equation of the line in slope-intercept form

    Linear equations are typically organized in slope-intercept form: y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept (the value of y when x is 0)

    Plug in the slope \frac{1}{2}

    y=\frac{1}{2}x+b

    Plug in the given point (6,9) and solve for b

    9=\frac{1}{2}(6)+b\\9=3+b

    Subtract 3 from both sides

    9-3=3+b-3\\6=b

    Plug 6 back into y=\frac{1}{2}x+b

    y=\frac{1}{2}x+6

    2) Rearrange the equation into standard form

    Standard form: Ax+By=C where A, B and C are integers and A is typically positive

    y=\frac{1}{2}x+6

    Multiply both sides by 2 to remove the fraction

    2y=1x+12\\2y=x+12

    Subtract x from both sides to isolate 12 as C

    2y-x=x+12-x\\2y-x=12\\-x+2y=12

    Multiply both sides by -1 to make A positive

    x-2y=-12

    I hope this helps!
