Start with y  y1 = m(x  x1) which is point slope form and plug in m = 6 (the slope) and (x1, y1) = (5, 1), which is the given point

so would be y1=6(x5)?

You have a 1 for your y so you have to subtract a negative number, which is adding a positive number.

y(1)=6(x5) and then simplify the left side.

keep in mind that subtracting a negative is like adding ex: 2(3) = 2+3 11(7) = 11+7 x(z) = x+z
