What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: # ( -3,2), (2,-5)#? Algebra Graphs of Linear Equations and Functions Slope 1 Answer BRIAN M. Jun 1, 2016 The slope is #m =-7/5# Explanation: The formula for slope is #m = (y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)# For the coordinate points #(-3,2) and (2,-5)# #x_1 = -3# #x_2 = 2# #y_1 = 2# #y_2 = -5# #m = (-5-2)/(2-(-3))# #m = -7/5# The slope is #m =-7/5# Answer link Related questions What is Slope?
