#### 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=12/11#

#rArry=12/11x+blarrcolor(blue)"is the partial equation"#

#"to find b substitute "(-3,-8)" into the partial equation"#

#-8=-36/11+brArrb=-88/11+36/11=-52/11#

#rArry=11/12x-52/11larrcolor(red)"is the equation of line"#
