# What is the slope of the line between  (7, 13)  and  (-2, -2 ) ?

m=color(blue)(5/3

#### Explanation:

(7,13) = color(blue)(x_1,y_1

(-2,-2) = color(blue)(x_2,y_2

The slope
m=color(blue)((y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

m=color(blue)((-2-13)/(-2-7)

$m = \frac{- 15}{- 9}$

$m = \frac{\cancel{15}}{\cancel{9}}$

m=color(blue)(5/3
