# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points:  ( 0,4), (2,-2)?

slope $m = - 3$
Given $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) = \left(0 , 4\right)$
Given $\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(2 , - 2\right)$
Slope $m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}} = \frac{- 2 - 4}{2 - 0} = - \frac{6}{2} = - 3$
