What is the slope of the line between (-4, 4) and (-1, -2)?

slope between 2 points (x1,y1)  and (x2,y2) can be found using the formula,  known as Point Slope form

m=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

Here, x1=-4,y1=4
x2=-1,y2=-2

so, m = (-2-4)/(-1-(-4)) = -6/(-1+4) = -6/3 = -2

the answer is (c)

Please best my answer if helpful. Thanks :)
