y+6=1/2(x+3)

Step-by-step explanation:

Hi there!

We want to find the equation of the line in point-slope form that passes through (-3, -6), and (3, -3)

Point-slope form is given as y- =m(x- ) where ( , ) is a point and m is the slope

We don’t know the slope of the line, so let’s find it

The formula for the slope (m) calculated from two points is , where ( , ) and ( , ) are points

We have two points, but let’s label their values to avoid any confusion =-3 =-6 =3 =-3

Now substitute into the formula (remember: the formula has SUBTRACTION)

m= simplify

m= m= m=1/2

So the slope of the line is 1/2

Now that we have everything needed for point-slope form (a point and the slope), substitute the values into the formula (remember: the formula has SUBTRACTION)

y- =m(x- )

y–6=1/2(x–3)

simplify

y+6=1/2(x+3)

Hope this helps!
