**rise change in y vertical change**

slope of a line = ------ = ------------ = --------------------

run change in x horizontal change

slope of a line = ------ = ------------ = --------------------

run change in x horizontal change

**Find the difference in the y-coordinates over the difference in the x-coordinates.**

-5 - 1

-------- = slope {subtracted y-coordinates over subtraction of x-coordinates}

2 - (-2)

-6

---- = slope {subtracted}
