Probably an easy one for you guys.
Find the Gradient of points (-3,4) (5,-2)
I keep getting -6 over 8.
If you could explain how you got the answer and where I'm going wrong that would be great!

As stated the slope is the rise for a given run. So in your example:
x=8 (-3,5) and y = -6 (4,-2) so the slope is -6/8 or -0.758
