#### Answer

$2x-3y=24$

#### Work Step by Step

The general form of a line is defined as $Ax+By=C$. First, multiply both sides of the equation by the least common denominator of all the terms. Then bring the $x$-term over to the left side of the equation. $y=\frac{2}{3}x-8$ $3(y)=3(\frac{2}{3}x-8)$ $3y=2x-24$ $-2x+3y=-24$ $2x-3y=24$
