Hey!

Algebra is gr8. In this case, what you would do is use the slope formula;

#### Explanation:

Where m = slope, and each 'y' or 'x' term is inserted from your coordinate points!

(5, -6)(2, 5)

'5' is

'-6' is

'2' is

'5' is

(Respectively, if you haven't noticed :)

Plug them in!

(Remember, two negatives cancel out, so the top will be 5 + 6)

Your slope is

Or approximately 3.67 (rounded)
