Using slope point form:y-y1=m(x-x1) where m=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1) Equation of line is 5y+20=3x+6 =>y+4=3/5(x+2) so the answer is 2 in the fill in the blanks .
See it like this: If $\displaystyle f(x)= ax+b$ is the line passing through the given points: First we have: $\displaystyle f(-2)= -2a+b=-4$ $\displaystyle f(3) = 3a+b = -1$ From these 2 equations you can determine a,b
