    Are you familiar with point slope formula? It makes doing this very easy

    or you can use my favorite slope intercept form

    I am very unsure of what forms to use with this one. I do know the formula when you have 2 sets of points.

    But for point slope you need two points...

    When you have a point, and a slope. Use point slope. \[y-y_0 = m(x-x_0)\] Where m in the slope, and \(x_0,y_0\) are the x and y of the point.

    y-3=0(x-(-1))

    It should be very easy since 0 times anything is 0.

    y-3 = 0

    So y = ?

    Okay, that is what I have on my paper. The reason I just put 0, is because all the examples show y-3=0...........then they show y=0

    No, y = 3

    That is why it's so confusing. The book is really bad.

    So the line you described would be horizontal and maintain a constant value of 3 for any value of x.

    So I literally write the equation y-3=0 since it wants an equation; not just an answer. Does that sound right?

    You do need to write an equation. y = 3 is an equation.

    You want your equation in the form of y = something

    Where something has an x or a constant term, or both.
