Use the point-slope formula: y - y_{1} = m(x - x_{1}), where m is the slope and x_{1} and y_{1} are the numbers from the point.

y - y_{1} = m(x - x_{1}) 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
