    If by point-slope point you mean this: y=6x-45 I'm not sure, please double check :)

    Its somewhere along the lines of y + 3 = 6x + 8 or y +3 =6(x-8) I think.

    But if it goes through the point (8,3), and the gradient is 6, then you know it is y=6x+c, so you substitute in y and x and solve to get c?

    but it is asked to use point slope not point intercept form:)

    @Thats-me use y-y=m(x-x1) so y-3=6(x-8) y=6x-45:)

    sry its (y-y1)=m(x-x1) :)
