May 27, 2018

color(crimson)(y = -6 is the standard form of equation.

#### Explanation:

Given : $m = 0$, as it it’s horizontal line parallel to the x axis, (x_1, y-_1) = (-1, -6)

Point - Slope equation format is

$\left(y - {y}_{1}\right) = m \cdot \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$

Substituting values for $m , {x}_{1} , {y}_{1}$,

$y + 6 = 0 \cdot \left(x + 1\right)$

Format for standard form of the equation is

color(crimson)(y = -6# is the standard form of equation.
