To find the slope of the line passing through the points (0, 5) and (-2, -1), you use the formula:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{\text{change in } y}}{{\text{change in } x}} ]

Substitute the coordinates of the points into the formula:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{-1 - 5}}{{-2 - 0}} ]

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{-6}}{{-2}} ]

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{3}{1} ]

[ \text{Slope} = 3 ]

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.
