# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: (8,9) , (-3,2)?

May 16, 2016

The formula for slope is $m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$

#### Explanation:

$m = \frac{2 - 9}{- 3 - 8}$

$m = - \frac{7}{-} 11$

$m = \frac{7}{11}$

The slope measures $\frac{7}{11}$

Hopefully this helps!
