    isn't it (y+8) = 3 (x+1) ? @pooja195

    answer D has the form you get from a direct substitution \[y+8=3(x+1)\] there is nothing left to "solve" for

    @leutz13 you can solve it for \(y\) which is what it being said here, but if you look at your answer choices you do not have to do that

    Use what @pooja195 gave you: \(\Large y−y1=m(x−x1)\) y1=-8 x1=-1 m=3 so \(\Large y-(-8) = 3(x-(-1)\) continue to get your answer.
