Here is the problem that has me stumped today. Find an equation of the line having the given slope and containing the given point. Express your answer in the form y=mx+b m=0, (0, 8 ) I came up with y=x+8 I used the formula yy1=m(xx1) the 1's are subscript sorry unsure how to input that.

You are going to kick yourself when you write out the right hand side of that function ($yy_1=m(xx_1)$) with the correct values inserted.
