Answer

$y-7=-8(x-3)$

Work Step by Step

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ Use the Point-Slope form of linear equations to find the equation of the line with the given characteristics: \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \text{slope: } -8 \\\text{Through } (3,7) .\end{array} $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Using $y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ or the Point-Slope Form of linear equations, the equation of the line with the given conditions, \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y_1=7 ,\\x_1=3 ,\\m=-8 ,\end{array} is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y-y_1=m(x-x_1) \\\\ y-7=-8(x-3) .\end{array}
