The formula for slope is $m= \frac{y_{2}-y _{1} }{ x _{2}-x _{1} }$ Basically you label your points point 1 and point 2. (-4,8) is point 1and (-3,-6) is point 2 Plug the x and y values into the equation for slope $m=\frac{ (-6)-8 }{ -3-(-4) }$

Can you get the answer from here?

slope=$\frac{ -6-8 }{ -3+4 }$ $\frac{ -14 }{ 1 }$ -14 is the slope of the line that runs through (-4,8) and (-3,-6)
