Having y-intercept 6 and parallel to the x-axis.

Also, does it make a difference if it were parallel to the y-axis?

Yes it makes a big difference if it were parallel to the y axis.

A stright line parallel to the x axis which goes through the y intercept 6 has to give a value of 6 for y regardless of the value for x.

y =6

is the equation you're looking for.

or in slope intercept form, y = 0x + 6

If the line were parallel to the y axis then whatever the value for y x would always be the same, assuming it went through the same point 0,6 (that is to say y intercept 6), the the equation would have been x = 6

y = mx + c

c = y intercept = 6

if it is parallel to x-axis it is horizontal and slope = 0

equation is y = 0x + 6

y = 6 -
y = 6

y -6 =0
