    Answer:

    y=-8x-61

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The slope-intercept form of the equation is y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y intercept. We know so far, that the slope is -8. We plug that in for m.

    y=-8x+b

    Now, we need to find the y-intercept. The question gives us the point (-7,-5). We plug in -7 for x, and -5 for y.

    -5=-8(-7)+b

    Then, we solve.

    -5=56+b

    Subtract 56 from both sides.

    -61=b

    Finally, we get this equation:

    y=-8x-61
