Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Standard point slope form of a line is -

y = mx + c

where -

m is the slope, and c is the y intercept

Given in the question -

m = -3 and c = 1

therefore, required point slope form is -

y = -3x + 1

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

That is not one of the answers to choose from

Can you tell me the options?

Jun 26th, 2015

Yes, y-1=-3x, y+1=-3x, y-3=1x, y+3=-1x

Alright,

Equation I provided earlier is ..... y = -3x + 1

rearrange above equation and take '1' on left hand side, you will get -

y-1 = -3x

so the answer is first option.
