# How do you find the slope given ( 3, 2 ), ( -5, -7 )?

Slope is $m = \frac{10}{7}$
Use the slope formula: $m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$
where $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ is your first point and $\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ is your second point.
Substitute your values: $m = \frac{- 7 - 3}{- 5 - 2} = \frac{10}{7}$
