I am tried to problem cannot seem to get it right.

  • algebra -

    I answered the identical question yesterday. Was it you?

    the slope of the given equation is -9/5
    so your new equation must have slope 5/9 or it must be 5x - 9y = k
    sub in your point (2,-8)
    10 + 72 = k
    so the equation is 5x - 9y = 82
