0,8 6,0
That isn't the right method i don't think...

y - 8 = -8/6(x-0)
y-8= -8/6x - 0
+8
y= -8/6 x + 8 ???

this isn't the form ax+by=c and also i checked the answer and its 4x+3y=24??

simplifies to . Then multiply the whole expression by the denominator of the fraction, rearrange into the required form, and you get the answer.
