# How do you find the slope of the line that passes through each pair of points (8,9) and (-10,-2)?

Slope $m = \frac{11}{18}$

#### Explanation:

$\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(8 , 9\right) , \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(- 10 , - 2\right)$

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

$m = \frac{- 2 - 9}{- 10 - 8}$

$m = \left(- \frac{11}{-} 18\right) = \frac{11}{18}$
