# How do you write an equation of the line with (2,-4) and parallel to x=5?

$x = 2$
Line $x = 5$ is a vertical line intersecting the X-axis at point $5$.
Any other line parallel to this one should have an equation $x = A$, where $A$ is some constant.
Since our line should pass through a point $\left(2 , - 4\right)$, the only possible value for $A$ is $2$.
