    Hi! you want an equation of the form\[y = m(x - x_o)+ y_o\]

    Your know that \[m = \frac{1}{3}\]

    So you just need tu plug those values into the equation, so: \[y = \frac{1}{3}(x-(-6))+0\]

    Simplifying you get: \[y = \frac{1}{3}x+2\]

    You can write the last equation I wrote like this: \[y = \frac{1}{3}(x+6)\]
