To find the slope of the line passing through the points ((-1, 1)) and ((1, -7)), you can use the formula for slope:

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

Substitute the coordinates of the points into the formula:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{(-7) - 1}{1 - (-1)} ]

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{-7 - 1}{1 + 1} ]

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{-8}{2} ]

[ \text{Slope} = -4 ]

So, the slope of the line passing through the points ((-1, 1)) and ((1, -7)) is (-4).

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.
