Ans = E


Plot the lines. slope = 2/1 which is positive.

From P x-coordinate (2), move 2 steps up and one step over. You'll have to move 3 times to get to 5.
t-r = 6 = # of times you have to move up the y axis.

Got E as well

y = mx + c is the equation

r = 2 * 2 + c
t = 2 * 5 + c
t-r = 2 *( 5-2 ) = 6
