    It’s a horizontal line, y = 8.

    We start off with the equation ‘y = mx + b’

    Since we know that the slope is 0, we input that into m:
    y = 0x + b

    Input (7, 8) in order to find b:
    8 = 0(7) + b
    8 = 0 + b
    8 = b

    And so:
    y = 0x + 8

    Since the 0 makes x negligible, we can take it out:
    y = 8

    Answer:

    y=8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    y-y1=m(x-x1)

    y-8=0(x-7)

    y-8=0

    y=0+8

    y=8
