    Answer:

    y = x – 2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Find the slope using rise over run

    (y2 – y1) / (x2 – x1)

    Plug in the points:

    (y2 – y1) / (x2 – x1)

    (-5 – 4) / (-3 – 6)

    -9 / -9

    = 1

    Using y = mx + b, plug in the slope and a point to solve for b:

    y = mx + b

    4 = 1(6) + b

    4 = 6 + b

    -2 = b

    Plug in the slope and b to y = mx + b

    y = 1x – 2

    y = x – 2

    So, the equation of the line is y = x – 2
