What is the slope of the line that passes through the points (−4, 3) and (6, −2)?

A. −2
B. −1/2
C. 1/2
D. 2
E. 4

Formula of slope of a line that passes through points $$(x_1,y_1)$$ and $$(x_2,y_2)$$ = $$\frac {y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}$$
Therefore slope = $$\frac {(-2) - 3}{6 - (-4)}$$ = $$\frac {-5}{10}$$ = $$-\frac {1}{2}$$
