# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points:  (8, -5),( -3, 5)?

Slope = $- \frac{10}{11}$
The slope of any line passing through the points $\left(x 1 , y 1\right) \mathmr{and} \left(x 2 , y 2\right)$ is $\frac{y 2 - y 1}{x 2 - x 1}$
Here $x 2 = - 3 , y 2 = 5 , x 1 = 8 \mathmr{and} y 1 = - 5$
Substituting, $m = \frac{5 - \left(- 5\right)}{- 3 - 8} = \frac{10}{-} 11 = - \frac{10}{11}$
