To find the slope of a line given two points (x₁, y₁) and (x₂, y₂), you can use the formula:

[ \text{slope} = \frac{{y₂ - y₁}}{{x₂ - x₁}} ]

Using the given points (2,4) and (4,-2), the slope can be calculated as follows:

[ \text{slope} = \frac{{(-2) - 4}}{{4 - 2}} ] [ \text{slope} = \frac{{-6}}{{2}} ] [ \text{slope} = -3 ]

Therefore, the slope of the line passing through the points (2,4) and (4,-2) is -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.
