    so that would be y- 6 = -3(x + 1) ?

    Choose the point-slope form of the equation below that represents the line that passes through the points (−3, 2) and (2, 1).

    Now we plug it into the same equation lets use the point (-3,2) and the slope as -1

    so y - 2 = -1(x + 3

    a. y + 3 = −5(x − 2) b. y − 2 = −5(x + 3) c. y + 3 = −one fifth(x − 2) d. y − 2 = −one fifth(x + 3)
