We need to find the slope first

i think?

(x1,y1)=(-3,2) (x2,y2)=(6,-1) So (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) = (-1-2)/(6-(-3)) = ?

It is always a good idea to write down the two points one on top of the other, as @pooja195 suggested earlier. This way, it's easier to figure out the numbers without making a mistake.

wait 1/-3

Excellent, so that's your slope, 1/-3 is the same as -1/3. Now use the point slope form to get the equation. You can use P1=(x1,y1)=(-3,2) as your point, and slope is a=-1/3. The equation is then (y-y1) = a(x-x1)

You are close, but got signs wrong somewhere.
