$\text{slope } = - \frac{10}{3}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{to calculate the slope m use the "color(blue)"gradient formula}$

•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

$\text{let "(x_1,y_1)=(3,0)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(0 , 10\right)$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{10 - 0}{0 - 3} = \frac{10}{- 3} = - \frac{10}{3}$
