Answer:

#"slope "=-1#

Explanation:

#"to calculate the slope m use the "color(blue)"gradient formula"#

#•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)#

#"let "(x_1,y_1)=(3,5)" and "(x_2,y_2)=(-2,10)#

#rArrm=(10-5)/(-2-3)=5/(-5)=-1#

Answer:

#m = -1#

Explanation:

The slope of the line that passes through #(x_1, y_1) and(x_2, y_2)# :
#m = (y_2 - y_1)/(x_2 - x_1)#

In your case: #m = (10 - 5)/(-2 - 3)#

#m = -1#
