Slope is change in y over change in x. So if you do \[\frac{y_1-y_2}{x_1-x_2}\]You will have the slope. The points give you the x and y values. So say \((x_1, y_1)=(-6,1)\) and \((x_2, y_2)=(4,-4)\) and there you go.

It also works if I had chosen the points the opposite way. As long as my \(x_1\) and \(y_1\) come from one point, and the 2s come from the other, it works. NEVER pull say \(x_1\) from the first point and \(y_1\) from the second. That will fail. So once you pick one as the first point, just stick with it and it works.
