To find the slope of the line through two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), you use the formula: slope = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1). Plugging in the coordinates (3,-17) and (-5,3), the slope is calculated as (3 - (-17)) / (-5 - 3) = (3 + 17) / (-5 - 3) = 20 / -8 = -2.5. So, the slope of the line through the given points is -2.5.

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.
