\[yy _{1} = m(x x_{1})\] This is point slope form.

find your slope (m) and plug in an x and y value to find your equation.

point slope form means you don't solve for y, and gjhfdfg in point slope form you only plug in a single point, which is one X value and one Y value. so  \[(y + 7) = 1/3*(x+5)\] for the point (5, 7)

another right answer would be \[(y+6) = 1/3*(x+8) \] for the point (6, 8) it doesn't matter what point you use, just that you use one. Hope this helps.
