    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step one.

    Read the slope

    -1/4

    Step two

    Put the slope in the general equation

    y = mx + b

    y = -1/4 x + b

    Step 3

    Put the point into the equation from step 2

    (-8,5)

    5 = -1/4  -8   + b

    5 = 2 + b                   Subtract 2 from both sides

    5-2 = b

    b = 3

    Step 4

    Write the entire equation

    y =   -1/4 x + 3
