    If given two points on a line, then use the slope formula: \[m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\]

    A slope is the change in Y over the change in X. In other words, the incline or decline of a line. In this case, the line suggested by these points has a slope of (8+5), the change in Y divided by (-4+5), the change in X 13/1 = 13

    That gives you slope. To remember that it's "rise over run." (-5-8)/(-4+3)...which would be 13/1...so that's up 13 units and to the right 1.
