find the slope of the line given these 2 points. (-3,-5) and (1,-6)

please include all work

(-3,-5) and (1,-6)

Now we find the slope of the line using the formula

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

Now

x1 = - 3 x2 = - 1 y1 = - 5 y2 = - 6

Now putting the values,we get

slope = m = (- 6 - (-5)) / (- 1 - (- 3))

slope = m = (- 6 + 5) / (- 1 + 3)

slope = m = (- 1) / (2)

slope = m = - 1 / 2

Hence slope = m = - 1 / 2
