    you mean you need the equation of the line through the two points yes?

    slope is \{\frac{-5}{3}\] because from 5 to 8 is three units to the right and from 3 to -2 is 5 units down. \[m=\frac{-2-3}{8-5}=\frac{-5}{3}\]

    maybe you need an equation f(x)=mx+b

    now use point -slope formula \[y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\] \[y-3=\frac{5}{3}(x-5)\]

    now multiply by 3 to get \[3y-9=-5(x-5)\] \[3y-9=-5x+25\] \[5x+3y=25\]
