A line passes through the point (8,6) and has a slope of 6 . Write an equation for this line in (x,y)-coordinates. To find the equation of a line given the slope and one point
we can use the point-slope formula
Lets make point (8,6) = (x1,y1) And m = 6 (this is the slope.) Now we just plug in the values...
Now we perform the indicated operations...
Then add 6 to both sides of the equation...
And this is the final equation. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Greetings! Lets solve this shall we ?
So, we must solve this problem using the Point-Slope Formula such that
y - y1 = m(x - x1)
y - (-8) = 0(x - 6).............Anything times 0 is 0 such that
y + 8 = 0
y = -8
I hope this helped!
