    Answer: m = -5/8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The general equation for slope is rise over run, also known as:

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

    From the points (x, y), we can get all the variables we need.

    (-1, -7) gives us x1 = -1 and y1 = -7

    (-9, -2) gives us x2 = -9 and y2 = -2

    If we plug all the values in, we get:

    m = (-2 – (-7))/(-9 – (-1))

    m = (-2 + 7)/(-9 + 1) the negatives cancel

    m = (5)/(-8)

    m = -5/8
