#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in

#color(blue)"point-slope form"# is

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

where m represents the slope and# (x_1,y_1)" a point on the line"# here m = 2 and

#(x_1,y_1)=(-6,3)# substitute these values into the equation

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

#rArry-3=2(x+6)rArry-3=2x+12#

#rArry=2x+15larr" in slope-intercept form"#
