    Hello, the slope of the line is given by: m = rise/run. You are given two points, can you calculate the rise and run between both points?

    Welcome back @FreeG13. The rise is given by: -7 - 3 = -10. The run is given by: 4 - (-1) = 5. The slope is: rise/run: -10/5 = -2. Please let me know if any of this does not make sense. Learning is more important than the problem itself.
