Мы _____ в фи́рме.

In Russian, the verb "быть" (to be) conjugates based on both the tense and the subject of the sentence. The sentence "Мы _____ в фи́рме" requires the past tense form of the verb "быть" (to be) for the plural subject "мы" (we).

Here is a brief explanation of how "быть" (to be) conjugates in the past tense for different subjects:

– я (I) → был/была (bil/bilá) [masculine/feminine singular]
– ты (you, informal) → был/была (bil/bilá) [masculine/feminine singular]
– он (he) → был (bil) [masculine singular]
– она (she) → была (bilá) [feminine singular]
– оно (it) → было (biló) [neuter singular]
– мы (we) → были (bíli) [plural]
– вы (you, formal or plural) → были (bíli) [plural]
– они (they) → были (bíli) [plural]

The subject "мы" means "we," which is plural. Therefore, you use the past tense plural form of "быть," which is "были" (bíli).

Hence, the complete sentence is:
Мы были в фирме.
(My byli v fírme.)

This translates to:
"We were at the company."
