Use your slope formula

(-1 - 2.5) / (-.5 - 3) = -3.5/-3.5 = 1

Pick a point, does not matter which one, will get the same answer and use your point slope equation

y - 2.5 = 1(x - 3)

y = x - .5

y = x - (1/2)

m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

5/2-(-1)/(3-(-1/2)=

(7/2)/7/2 =1

so slope of the equation is 1.

No substitute one of the points into point slope equation and solve into slope intercept form:

y-y1 =m(x-x1)

y-(-1)=1(x-(-1/2)

y+1=x+1/2

y = x-1/2
