# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: (-9,1) , (-19,12)?

$- \frac{11}{10}$

#### Explanation:

To find the slope using two points divide the difference of the y-coordinates by the x-coordinates:

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

$\frac{12 - 1}{- 19 - \left(- 9\right)}$

$\frac{11}{- 10}$

$- \frac{11}{10}$
