Answer:

The slope of the line is -1

Step-by-step explanation:

You need to use the slope formula

Slope Formula: y2 - y1 / x2 - x1

**The numbers represent subscripts but the subscripts aren't on computers**

Your Coordinate Points:

(7, -3) and (3, -7)

Do -7 - (-3) / 3-7

First, do -7 - (-3)

The negatives cancel to an addition problem.

-7 + 3

Now do -7 + 3. This is a subtraction problem that should be negative.

-7 + 3 = -4

Next, do 3 - 7

That should be 4

-4/4 is what we have right now.

Do -4 divided by 4 which has to contain a negative.

That is simply -1.

The slope of the line is -1
