The slope of the line is -2.

#### Explanation:

The slope of any line can be found out if two of its co-ordinates are known. We have the following formula for the slope of aline where the two co-ordinates are given. (m is the slope of the line).

m =

Here let the first set of co-ordinates be

and the second set is

Substituting in the formula, you will have
