Answer

$y=-\dfrac{5}{3}x-8$

Work Step by Step

Using $y=mx+b$ where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y$-intercept, then the equation of the line with the given slope equal to $ -\dfrac{5}{3} $ and the given $y-$intercept equal to $\left(0, -8 \right)$, is \begin{array}{l} y=-\dfrac{5}{3}x-8 .\end{array}
