How do I find the slope of the line which passes through the points (-2, 3) and (-4, 5)?

The slope is -1.

Explanation:

The slope of the line between $A \left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) \mathmr{and} B \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ is $m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$

In this case $m = \frac{5 - 3}{- 4 - \left(- 2\right)} = \frac{2}{-} 2 = - 1$
