Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!

The point slope formula makes solving for equation of line easy

y-y1=m(x-x1)

Unfortunately, you did not put all the information to solve the problem. You would need to have been given the slope or another point.

To solve for slope:

m=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

Once you have a slope, you would simply just put in the point that you have indicated above.

Our point is (-6,-8), so

y1=-8

x1=-6.

Substitute y1 and x1 into the equation

y-y1=m(x-x1)

y-(-8)=m(x-(-6))

y+8=m(x+6). <===Note: NOT FINAL ANSWER UNTIL YOU HAVE SLOPE! D:

If you want me to help you solve for slope, please put the rest of the problem, and I will be willing to help you! Otherwise, you use the above equation to solve for the slope

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
