Given points P(-2,7) and Q(4,y) in a coordinate plane, for what value of y is the slope of the line through P and Q equal to -3/2?

Please help, thanks.

This is surely a home work problem.You must be knowing the slope of line joining two points in coordinate form. Equate it to the given value and find y.
