# How do you find the slope given (-1,3) and (4,-3)?

$\text{slope } = - \frac{6}{5}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{calculate the slope m using the "color(blue)"gradient formula}$

•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

$\text{let "(x_1,y_1)=(-1,3)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(4 , - 3\right)$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{- 3 - 3}{4 - \left(- 1\right)} = \frac{- 6}{5} = - \frac{6}{5}$
