To find the slope of the line passing through the points (-2, 7) and (3, -8), you can use the formula for slope:

m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)

Substitute the coordinates of the points into the formula:

m = (-8 - 7) / (3 - (-2))

Calculate:

m = (-8 - 7) / (3 + 2) m = (-15) / 5 m = -3

So, the slope of the line is -3.
