1. Start with the point-slope form: y - y_1 = m(x - x_1)

y - (-2) = -\frac{1}{2}(x - 2)

3. Simplify the equation:

y + 2 = -\frac{1}{2}x + 1

4. Solve for \( y \):

y = -\frac{1}{2}x + 1 - 2

5. Combine like terms:

y = -\frac{1}{2}x - 1

The equation in slope-intercept form is:

y = -\frac{1}{2}x - 1

3. Simplify the equation:

4. Solve for \( y \):

5. Combine like terms:

The equation in slope-intercept form is:
