Well I guess the slope right now is 1, but I'm not sure because I guess that 0 just looks weird in there to me which is throwing me off. Where does the -8 go in the equation? Before the x? If so, the answer is supposed to just be a number and there will be x and y values in the end, isn't that right?
Well, we need to be careful. When it comes to lines, I use only the slope-intercept form: $y=mx+b$. I don't worry about the standard form, the point-slope form, the two-point form, or anything but the slope-intercept form. Can you convert the equation you're given into slope-intercept form? I think if you do that, it might suggest the solution of the problem.
