To find the slope of a line passing through two points ((x_1, y_1)) and ((x_2, y_2)), you can use the formula:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1} ]

Using the given points (-5, 6) and (7, -8):

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{-8 - 6}{7 - (-5)} = \frac{-14}{12} = -\frac{7}{6} ]

So, the slope of the line passing through (-5, 6) and (7, -8) is (-\frac{7}{6}).

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.
