Find the slope of each line passing through (-5,2) and (-4,3) ?

**Slope is rise over run, or the change in the y-coordinates over the change in the x-coordinates.**

3 - 2

----------- {difference in y-coordinates over difference in x-coordinates}

-4 - (-5)

1

--- {subtracted in numerator and denominator}

1

= 1 {simplified}

**slope is 1**
