On a grid with points R(-2,-6)& S(3,4), what is the slope of line RS? I don't know how to find the slope. Thank you.

The formula for a straight line is

y = mx + b

m is the slope and b is the y intercept.

One way is to plug in the two sets of points listed in the problem and solve for m (and b). Post your work if you get stuck.
