A(-3,-3), M(x,y), B(5,6).

x = (-3+5) / 2 = 1.

y = (-3+6) / 2 = 1 1/2 = 3/2.

The slope of a straight line is the same at all points on the line.

m = (6-(-3)) / (5-(-3)) = 9/8.

m2 = -8/9 = Negative reciprocal of m.

(1,3/2),(x,y),

m2 = (y-3/2) / (x-1) = -8/9,

Cross multiply:

y-3/2 = -8/9(x-1).
