color(green)("Slope of the line passing thru points is " -(11/8)

#### Explanation:

$A \left(8 , - 5\right) , B \left(0 , 6\right) , \text{ To write the slope of the line}$

$S l o p e = m = \frac{{y}_{b} - {y}_{a}}{{x}_{b} - {x}_{a}}$

$m = \frac{6 - \left(- 5\right)}{0 - 8} = \frac{11}{-} 8 = - \left(\frac{11}{8}\right)$
