Answer:

$2 x + 3 y + 2 = 0$

Explanation:

$S l o p e = m = - \frac{2}{3} , \left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) = \left(2 , - 2\right)$

#

$\text{Point - Slope Form } \left(y - {y}_{1}\right) = m \cdot \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$

$y + 2 = - \left(\frac{2}{3}\right) \cdot \left(x - 2\right)$

$3 y + 6 = - 2 x + 4$

$2 x + 3 y + 2 = 0$
