Use the point-slope formula:  y - y1 = m(x - x1), where m is the slope and x1 and y1 are the numbers from the point.

y - y1 = m(x - x1)                         Point-slope formula

y - 35 = 11/8(x - 24)                    Substitution

y - 35 = (11/8)x - (11/8)*24         Distribute the 11/8

y - 35 = (11/8)x - 33                    Simplify

y - 35 + 35 = (11/8)x - 33 + 35      Add 35 to each side

y = (11/8)x + 2                             Simplify
