Graph the line that passes through the point (6, -8) and has slope -1/3.
I know the one point will be (6, -8) so my question is do I then go from the first point and then move one over and three up to get the next point?

The slope is always "rise over run"
-1/3 is -1 rise and 3 run

ok so making the next point then being (3, -7) or (9, -7)
or am I doing this all wrong?

Sounds correct
I'm going to graph it to make sure since its hard to visually see that. :P
