    Use the point slope formula, y-y1=m(x-x1) The M is your slope. You will have to use y2-y1/x2-x1 to get slope and plug it in for M.

    Oh, I see it just wants slope. Just use the last equation I gave :)

    Find your y2 value (which is 3) and subtract it from your Y1 value (which is 7) Divide that by your x2 value - X1 value. I will let you find x2 and x1.

    slope = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1) slope = (3-7) / (-1-2) slope = -4 / -3 slope = 4/3 FINAL ANSWER

    (-7,-3) (1,-4) Slope = y2-y1/x2-x1 Slope = (-4+3)/(1+7) Slope = -1/8 FINAL ANSWER
