#### Explanation:

The slope equals change in y divided by change in x. The change in y is 4-10, or -6, and the change in x is 3 - (-6), or 9.

#### Explanation:

#"to calculate the slope m use the "color(blue)"gradient formula"#

#•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)#

#"let "(x_1,y_1)=(3,4)" and "(x_2,y_2)=(-6,10)#

#rArrm=(10-4)/(-6-3)=6/(-9)=-2/3#
