Which of the following equations represents the line that passes through the point (0, -6) and that is parallel to the line x - 4y - 5 = 0?

A
x
-4x - y - 6 = 0
B
x
4x - y - 6 = 0
C
x
x - 4y - 24 = 0
D
x
x - 4y + 6 = 0

• math -

since it is parallel, it will differ only in the constant, so
new equation is
x - 4y + c = 0

plug in the given point to find c.
