# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points:  (-3, -2) ; (0,0) ?

$\text{slope } = \frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

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

•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

$\text{let "(x_1,y_1)=(-3,-2)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(0 , 0\right)$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{0 - \left(- 2\right)}{0 - \left(- 3\right)} = \frac{2}{3}$
