Answer

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

Work Step by Step

We can find the slope of this line by using the equation: m = $\frac{y2-y1}{x2-x1}$ Using this equation, we find the slope to be -$\frac{3}{8}$ We can then use point-slope form using either point. y+8 = -$\frac{3}{8}$ (x-2) Which can be rewritten in standard form as: y = -$\frac{3}{8x}$ - $\frac{29}{4}$
