# Choose the Correct Slope of the Line that Passes Through the Points (−4, 8) and (−3, −6).

# a) 7 b) 14 c) 0 d) -14

We will be using the slope formula for a line that passes through two points to answer this.

## Answer: The Slope of the Line that Passes Through (−4, 8) and (−3, −6) is -14.

Let's solve this step by step.

**Explanation:**

Given that, (x_{1},y_{1}) = (−4, 8) and (x_{2},y_{2}) = (−3, −6)

The Slope of the Line that Passes Through (x_{1},y_{1}) and (x_{2},y_{2}) is given by:

Slope (m) = (y_{2} - y_{1}) / (x_{2} - x_{1})

Substitue (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) with their given values.

m = (-6 - 8)/(-3 - (-4))

m = (-14) / (-3 + 4)

m = -14 / 1

m = -14
