Simple, using y1-y2 and x1-x2 method to find the slope,
take (0,-2) and (6,0)
and,
-2-0
over (-2-0/0-6)
0-6
making it -2/-6=3
Thus, your slope is 3.
But you're still not done, use slope and plug it into any of the points.
Using (0,-2)
An equation in slope-intercept form is y=mx+b
Thus,
-2=3(0)+b
-2=0+b
-2=b
Thus, your equation is y=3x-2.
