To find the slope of the line passing through two points, you can use the formula:

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

Given the points (-8, -7) and (9, 6),

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{6 - (-7)}{9 - (-8)} ] [ = \frac{6 + 7}{9 + 8} ] [ = \frac{13}{17} ]

So, the slope of the line passing through the given points is ( \frac{13}{17} ).
