    Do you know what the slope formula is? For calculating the slope?

    Okay good. so (8, -1) is your first pair of coordinates so that would be your y1 and x1 (-7, 4) would be your second pair of coordinates,so that would be your y2 and x2 - Go ahead and calculate your slope. Remember the coordinate pairs go in alphabetical order, (x,y).

    it would be 1 over negative 3 once you simplified it. before that it was 5 over negative 15
