# How do you write the point slope form of the equation given (3,2) and slope -1/3?

$y - 2 = - \frac{1}{3} \left(x - 3\right)$

#### Explanation:

Point-slope's form is:

$\left(y - {y}_{1}\right) = m \left(x - {x}_{1}\right)$.

The "${y}_{1}$" and "${x}_{1}$" are just the $x$ value and $y$ value from your point and $m$ is slope.

Plugging those values in gives:

$y - 2 = - \frac{1}{3} \left(x - 3\right)$
