Answer

$m=0$

Work Step by Step

Using $m=\dfrac{y_1-y_2}{x_1-x_2}$ or the Slope Formula, then the slope of the line containing the given points, $\left( 5,-2 \right) \text{ and } \left( -4,-2 \right)$, is \begin{array}{l} m=\dfrac{-2-(-2)}{5-(-4)} \\\\ m=\dfrac{-2+2}{5+4} \\\\ m=\dfrac{0}{9} \\\\ m=0 .\end{array}
