# How do you find the slope given (11, -10) and (-17,-11)?

$\text{slope } = \frac{1}{28}$

#### Explanation:

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

•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

$\text{let "(x_1,y_1)=(11,-10)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(- 17 , - 11\right)$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{- 11 - \left(- 10\right)}{- 17 - 11} = \frac{- 1}{- 28} = \frac{1}{28}$
