#### Explanation:

We can use the point-slope form to start with:

We can choose either point, so let's pick

The slope can be found this way:

So now we have:

To put this into standard form, we need the equation in the form of:

Multiply by 2 to get rid of the denominator:

The graph of our line looks like this:

graph{(9x+2y-8)((x-4)^2+(y+14)^2-.5)((x-2)^2+(y+5)^2-.5)=0[-20,20,-20,0]}
