#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"point-slope form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y-y_1=m(x-x_1))color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where m represents the slope and# (x_1,y_1) # a point on the line.

#"here " m=3" and " (x_1,y_1)=(-6,-2)#

#rArry-(-2)=3(x-(-6))#

#rArry+2=3(x+6)larrcolor(red)" in point-slope form"#
