$m = \frac{3}{2}$

#### Explanation:

$m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$

Here , ${x}_{1} = - 7$

${x}_{2} = - 3$

${y}_{1} = - 4$

${y}_{2} = 2$

$\implies m = \frac{2 - \left(- 4\right)}{- 3 - \left(- 7\right)}$

$\implies m = \frac{2 + 4}{- 3 + 7}$

$\implies m = \frac{6}{4}$

$\implies m = \frac{3}{2}$
