# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: # (-5, -3) , (10,-2)#?

##### 1 Answer

The slope is

#### Explanation:

To find the slope of a line given the points it crosses you can use the formula:

#"slope" = m = (y_2 - y_1)/(x_2 - x_1)#

Identify the coordinates:

You then apply the formula.

#m = (-2 - (-3))/(10 - (-5)) = 1/15#
