the answer is $\frac{7}{24}$

#### Explanation:

always remember that slope formula is $\frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$ so you can apply this with this equation

$\frac{7}{24}$

#### Explanation:

The slope of a line can be found using $\text{rise"/"run}$, where $\text{rise}$ is the difference of the y coordinates and $\text{run}$ is the difference of the x coordinates.

The x coordinate from the first pair is $- 3$, from the second ordered pair is $21$. Therefore we have $- 3 - 21 = - 24$ which was the $\text{run}$.

The y coordinate from the first pair is $7$, from the second ordered pair is $14$. Therefore we have $7 - 14 = - 7$ which was the $\text{rise}$.

We know that the slope can be found using $\text{rise"/"run} \implies \frac{- 7}{-} 24 \implies \frac{7}{24}$
