# How do you find the slope of the line (-2 2) (5 3)?

m = $\frac{1}{7}$

#### Explanation:

When two points are given the formula to calculate slope is -

m = $\frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$

${x}_{1}$ = -2
${y}_{1}$ = 2
${x}_{2}$ = 5
${y}_{2}$ = 3

m = $\frac{3 - 2}{3 - \left(- 2\right)}$= (3 - 2)/ (3 + 2)) = $\frac{1}{7}$
