color(brown)(m = -(2/3)

#### Explanation:

Slope of a line is found using the following formula

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

Given : $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) = \left(10 , - 2\right) , \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(1 , 4\right)$

$\therefore m = \frac{4 + 2}{1 - 10} = \frac{6}{-} 9$

color(brown)(m = -(2/3)
