$\text{downwards from left to right}$

#### Explanation:

The following facts about the slopes of lines are worth remembering for future use.

•" A line with a "color(blue)"positive slope" runs upwards from
left to right in the coordinate-plane.

•" A line with a "color(red)"negative slope"# runs downwards from left to right in the coordinate plane.

$\text{ here the slope is negative, that is} \frac{3}{- 2} = - \frac{3}{2}$

Here is a diagram of a line with a slope of $- \frac{3}{2}$
