    To solve we have to use the formula:

    m= Y2-Y1/X2-X1

    X1= -5

    Y1= -8

    X2= -2

    Y2= 1

    Use the values into the formula for the slope.

    b= -8 =(3) x (-5) = 7

    Then the equation of the line can be written in the form of y=mx+b

    y=3x+7

    Answer:

    The slope is m=3
