    \[y = -\frac{2x}{3} -6\]

    y = -(2/3)(x-6)-2 y = (-2/3)x+(-2/3)-6 -2 y = (-2/3)x+(12/3) -2 y = (-2/3)x+2 is right

    you need to use the point slope formula for these problems: \[(y-y _{1}) = m(x - x _{1})\]

    just use the formula, y-y1=m(x-x1) (6, -2) and has a slope of -2/3 y+2=-2/3(x-6) 3(y+2)=-2(x-6) 3y+6=-2x+12 2x+3y=12-6 2x+3y=6
