#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"here "m=3/2#

#rArry=3/2x+blarrcolor(blue)"is the partial equation"#

#"to find b substitute "(-8,6)" into the partial equation"#

#6=-12+brArrb=6+12=18#

#rArry=3/2x+18larrcolor(red)"in slope-intercept form"#
