Rise is the change in the y coordinate, if you think of the graph, you are going up or down. Run is the change in the x coordinate, left to right. To find the change, we take the second coordinate, and subtract the first coordinate. So, what does that give us?
y2  (y1) = y change
and
x2  (x1) = x change
so your slope is y/x, just throw in your numbers now
