    Start by making a table for the ordered pairs with the x-values

    in the left column and the y-values in the right column.

    --x--|--y--

    -2 | - 5

    1 | - 3

    |

    |

    Now remember that the slope is equal to the rate of change

    or the change in y over the change in x.

    We can see that the y-values go from - 5 to - 3 so the change in y is 2.

    The x-values go from - 2 to 1 so the change in x is 3.

    So the change in y over the change in x is 2/3.

    This means that the slope is also equal to 2/3.
