# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: (-2, 10), (-4, -3)?

$S l o p e = \frac{13}{2}$

#### Explanation:

$\left(- 2 , 10\right) \equiv \left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$
$\left(- 4 , - 3\right) \equiv \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$

$S l o p e = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$

$S l o p e = \frac{- 3 - 10}{- 4 - \left(- 2\right)}$

$S l o p e = \frac{- 13}{- 4 + 2}$

$S l o p e = \frac{- 13}{- 2}$

$S l o p e = \frac{13}{2}$
