    the requested slope m is given by the subsequent formula: \[m = \frac{{{y_2} - {y_1}}}{{{x_2} - {x_1}}}\]

    where (x1, y1)=(-3,-2) and (x2,y2)=3,-1)

    hint: after a substitution, we get: \[\Large m = \frac{{{y_2} - {y_1}}}{{{x_2} - {x_1}}} = \frac{{ - 1 - \left( { - 2} \right)}}{{3 - \left( { - 3} \right)}} = ...?\]

    hint: we have: x1=-2, y1=3 x2=1, y2=-3 so we can write: \[\Large m = \frac{{{y_2} - {y_1}}}{{{x_2} - {x_1}}} = \frac{{ - 3 - 3}}{{1 - \left( { - 2} \right)}} = ...?\]
