C, y=-3x-6

Work Step by Step

The equation y+12=-3(x-2) is written in point-slope form, and to rewrite it in slope-intercept form we being by applying the distributive property (which says that a(b+c)=ab+ac) to the right side of the equation, so y+12=-3x+6 Finally, we must solve for y. To do this, we simply subtract 12 from both sides to get y=-3x-6
