The equation is $y=-\dfrac{3}{2}x+2$

Work Step by Step

You are given $(2,-1)$ which is parallel to the equation $y=-\dfrac{3}{2}x+6$.Find the equation of the points: The lines are parallel so they have the same slope so $y=-\dfrac{3}{2}x+b$, plug in the points into the equation to find b. $y=-\dfrac{3}{2}x+b$ $-1=-3+b$ $b=2$ The equation is $y=-\dfrac{3}{2}x+2$
