(I) Slope is -8 and y-intercept is 3.

The slope-intercept form of a line is

`y=mx+b` ,

where m is the slope and b is y-intercept.

**Hence, the equation of the given line in slope-intercept form is
`y=-8x+3` .**

(II) Passes the point (-2,0) and has a slope of 5.

The point-slope form of a line is

`y-y_1=m(x-x_1)`

where m is the slope and (x1,y1) is one of the given points

Substituting m=5, x1=-2 and y=0 to the formula yields:

`y-0=5(x-(-2))`

`y=5(x+2)`

**Hence, the equation of the given line in point-slope form is
`y=5(x+2)` .**

(III) Horizontal line passes through (-2,6).

The equation of a horizontal line is in the form

`y=y_a`

where `y_a` represents the y-coordinate of the point.

**Therefore, the equation of the horizontal line is `y=6`
.**

(IV) Vertical line that passes through (-2,6)

The equation of a vertical line is in the form

`x=x_a`

where x_a represents the x-coordinate of the point.

**Thus, the equation of the vertical line is `x=-2` .**
