The point  ( -2, f(-2) ) lies on the leftmost line segment.

 

The leftmost line segment contains the points  (-4, 4)  and  (-1, -1) .

So the slope of this line segment  =  [ -1 - 4 ] / [ -1 - -4 ]   =   -5 / 3  .

 

We know that the slope between  (-2, f(-2) )  and  (-1, -1)  will also be  -5/3 .

 

Using the slope  -5/3  and the points  (-1, -1)   and   (-2, f(-2) )

 

-5/3  =  [ f(-2) - -1 ] / [-2 - -1]

 

-5/3  =  [ f(-2) + 1 ] / [ -1 ]         Multiply both sides by  -1 .

 

5/3  =  f(-2) + 1                     Subtract  1  from both sides.

 

5/3 - 1  =  f(-2)

 

2/3  =  f(-2)
