1. (-1,2) and (-5,10)

Given points are A = (-1,2) ; B = (-5,10)

A=(-1,2)=(x1,y1)  and B= (-5,10) = (X2,Y2) say

slope m = y2-y1 / x2-x1

slope m = 10-2 / -5+1

m = 8/-4

slope m= -2

2. (-7, 10) and (1,10)

Given points are A = (-7,10); B = (1,10)

A = (-7,10) =(X1,Y1) and B (1,10) =(x2,y2) say

slope m = y2-y1 / x2-x1

slope m = 10-10 /1-(-7)

slope m = 0 /8

slope m = 0
