#### Answer

$y+4=2/3(x-8)$

#### Work Step by Step

Recall, the equation for point slope form is the following: $y- y_{1}=m(x - x_{1})$, where $(x_{1} , y_{1})$ is a point on the line and m is the slope of the line. Thus, we plug 8 in for $x_{1}$, -4 in for $y_{1}$, and 2/3 in for m to obtain the answer: $y+4=2/3(x-8)$.
