    Answer:

    y – 7 = -8(x – 1)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are provided with some information

    We are given point (1,7)

    Slope = -8

    Using a point slope form formula

    y – y_1 = m (x – x_1)

    m = -8

    y_1 = 7

    x_1 = 1

    Inserting the given values into the equation

    y – y_1 = m ( x – x_1)

    y – 7 = -8 ( x – 1) ( point slope form)

    Don’t confuse slope intercept form with point slope form

    Slope intercept form

    y = mx + C

    y – point y

    m – slope

    x – point x

    C – intercept

    Point slope form

    y – y_1 = m(x – x_1)
