# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: (-2, 10), (3,3)?

$\text{slope } = - \frac{7}{5}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{to calculate the slope m use the "color(blue)"gradient formula}$

•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

$\text{let "(x_1,y_1)=(-2,10)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(3 , 3\right)$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{3 - 10}{3 - \left(- 2\right)} = \frac{- 7}{5} = - \frac{7}{5}$
