Slope is y(two) - y(one)

over x(two) - x(one

so you equation will be

(-6) - (-2)

-----------

(-1) - 3

which equals -4 / -4 or 1

Another way to do this is knowing that slope is rise/run, plot the points then count up for the rise and over for the run. You should get the same answer either way.

Hopefully this helps!
