Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Think about what does the slope means. It means that equation has to start with something like y=mx +some number Now you have the point given, (8,8) that means that at the point x=8, y=8 put these values in the equation and count that +some number. Yell if something is not clear

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is one clear way. also don't forget the all mighty 'pointslope' formula which says that a line through \[(x_1,y_1)\] with slope \[m\] has the equation \[yy_1=m(xx_1)\] where of course \[x_1, y_1\] are numbers and x and y are the variables in your anwer. so you can write \[y(8)=\frac{5}{6}(x8)\] and solve for y
