To solve this problem, you must know the formula for slope, which is

m=(y_{2}-y_{1})/(x_{2}-x_{1}), where m is the slope, and the two points are defined as (x_{1},y_{1}) and (x_{2},y_{2}). We are given two points, (-6,-6) and (-3,1). You can choose either one to be (x_{1},y_{1}) and (x_{2},y_{2}), and in this case I will name (-6,-6) as (x_{1},y_{1}) and (-3,1) as (x_{2},y_{2}). Therefore, m=(1-(-6))/(-3-(-6)). This becomes m=(1+6)/(-3+6), which when we add gives us m=7/3.
