To find the slope of the line passing through the points (-1, -6) and (4, -2), you can use the slope formula:

slope = (change in y) / (change in x)

Substitute the coordinates of the points into the formula:

slope = (-2 - (-6)) / (4 - (-1))

Then, calculate the changes in y and x:

change in y = -2 - (-6) = -2 + 6 = 4 change in x = 4 - (-1) = 4 + 1 = 5

Now, plug the values into the formula:

slope = 4 / 5

So, the slope of the line passing through the points (-1, -6) and (4, -2) is 4/5.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
