    that is the point slope equation for a line. What is your question?

    you see im really horrible at this and i don't even have a clue about what you asked but i think i do you mean the missing numbers?

    do you have graph ? maybe we have to find numbers from the graph

    \[\rm (y-y_1)=m(x-x_1)\] is point slope form where m represent slope y=mx+B slope intercept form where m is slope and b is y-intercept

    you would use that formula and 2 points which have X and Y coordinates to get the equation for the line that connects both points and M is the slope

    i figured it out it was y+6=4(x-3)

    good we need to convert that into slope intercept form ??

    hmm alright \[\huge\rm y+6=4(x-3)\] start with distributive property distribute (x-3) by 4 here is an example \[\rm \color{ReD}{a}(b+c)=\color{ReD}{a}*b+\color{ReD}{a}*c =\color{ReD}{a}b+\color{Red}{a}c\]

    thats equation is already in point slope form \[\huge\rm y-y_1 = m(x-x_1)\] ^^^ point slope form \[\huge\rm y=mx+b\] ^ slope intercept form \[\huge\rm Ax+By=C\] ^standard form of linear equation

    y+6 = 4x - 12 from there you can solve for y by subtracting 6 from both sides.
