To find the slope passing through the points (-4,7) and (2,-5), you can use the slope formula:

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

Where:

- (m) is the slope,
- ((x_1, y_1)) and ((x_2, y_2)) are the coordinates of the two points.

Substituting the given points into the formula:

[m = \frac{-5 - 7}{2 - (-4)}]

[m = \frac{-12}{2 + 4}]

[m = \frac{-12}{6}]

[m = -2]

So, the slope passing through the points (-4,7) and (2,-5) is -2.
