    The slope of the line is -7/6.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    From the table shown, it can be determined that the given points (x,y) are (-2,1) , (4,-6) and (10,-13).

    To find the slope :

    The slope formula is used.

    Slope = (y2 – y1) / (x2 – x1)

    Take any two points from the given points in the table.

    Let,

    (x1,y1) be (-2,1) and (x2,y2) be (10,-13)

    Substituting the values of x1= -2, y1= 1, x2= 10, y2= -13 in the slope formula,

    Slope = (y2 – y1) / (x2 – x1)

    (-13 – 1) / (10 + 2)

    ⇒ -14 / 12

    -7/6

    Therefore, the slope can be found in the similar way by using any of the two points that lies on the line. The slope of the line is -7/6.
