Choose the point-slope form of the equation below that represents the line that passes through the points (−3, 2) and (2, 1). A. y + 3 = -5 (x -2) B. y - 2 = -5 (x - 3) C. y + 3 = -1/5 (x - 2) D. y - 2 = -1/5(x + 3)

    Find the slope first \[\LARGE \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}=slope\]

    Once you find the slope plug the info in this formula \[\huge y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\] where m=slope (x1,y1)
