#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

We use the point-slope formula:

We know:

A point:

Thus, we substitute all these values into the point-slope formula:

This gives us the equation of the line with the slope

So we are simply solving for

We can verify this graphically: graph{-1/5x-8/5 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
