okay. Your question starts off with a statement given the line of point slope form and it gives you the formula for point slope form, which is why I minus Y one equals m parentheses x minus x one. Then it says find em and be in the following equation, y equals -8 X -3. So this question doesn't really make sense the way it's currently being asked. I can answer this question, find em and be of this following equation, but I don't see where you're being tied into point slope form because this is not point slope form. This is slope intercept form and slope intercept form looks like mx plus B. So if this is the only question you're looking for to find em and be mm is the number beside our X. When the Y is written beside itself. So that would be negative eight And your b value would be -3. That is this value goes in this position. Now, if by chance you were supposed to show how you could move things around in point slope form to see what M and B R. I will solve this equation for why you could distribute the M. And that would give um X -MX one. Then I would add why one to both sides. Mm hmm. And you end up with why equals m x minus um, MX one Plus Y one. So your M value is right there. It's also there. This could be considered your B expression, they just don't think that's what they want you to do here. You were given an equation in slope intercept form, the question says, find em and be we found him right here. So I would say that should be what you're looking for.
