    m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) m = (-3-2)/(1-(-4)) m = (-3-2)/(1+4) I'll let you finish

    -3-2=-5? 1+4=5? so m=5,5?

    you divide the two though and one of those is negative

    which means your final slope is negative

    why would I divide the 2?

    rise is the change in y run is the change in x

    i think he meant "divide the two numbers" not by "divide by 2"
