Find the slope of the line containing the given pairs of points. If the line is undefined, state so. Please show all of your work. (-5, -2) and (-7, -2)

• pre-algebra -

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

let the first point be x1,y1, then

slope= (-2-(-2))/(-5-(-2))=0/-3=0

• pre-algebra -

(x1,y1)(x2,y2)
-2-(-2)/-7-(-5)
= 0/-2
