Answer

y=-$\frac{3}{8}$x-$\frac{29}{4}$

Work Step by Step

through(2,-8) and (-6,-5) y=mx+b m=$\frac{-5+8}{-6-2}$ m=$\frac{3}{-8}$ and (2,-8) y=mx+b -8=2$\frac{-3}{8}$+b -8=$\frac{-3}{4}$+b -$\frac{32}{4}$=$\frac{-3}{4}$+b -$\frac{32}{4}$+$\frac{3}{4}$=b -$\frac{29}{4}$=b y=mx+b y=-$\frac{3}{8}$x-$\frac{29}{4}$
