# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: (0, -2), (-1, 5) ?

$- 7$

#### Explanation:

use the formula

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

Here ${x}_{1} = 0$, ${x}_{2} = - 1$, ${y}_{1} = - 2$, and ${y}_{2} = 5$

So after arranging the values according to the formula so the answer would be $- 7$
