The equation of a line with slope m and y-intercept b is y = mx + b.

The equation of a line with a slope of -8 and y-intercept of 3 is y = -8x + 3

A vertical line has slope infinity. The equation of a vertical line passing through (-2, 6) is x = -2

A horizontal line has slope 0. The equation of a horizontal line passing through (-2, 6) is y = 6.

The equation of a line in slope-intercept form is y = mx + c where m is the slope and c is the y-intercept.

If the slope of a line is -8 and the y-intercept is 3, the equation of the line is y = -8x + 3.

The equation of a horizontal line through a point (a, b) is x = a.

The equation of a horizontal line through (-2, 6) is x = -2.

The equation of a vertical line through (a, b) is y = b

The equation of a vertical line through (-2, 6) is y = 6
