#### Answer

The slope is undefined.

#### Work Step by Step

To find the slope, we use the formula $m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$. We plug in the $x$ and $y$ values in the given coordinates: $m=\frac{2-(-2)}{-3-(-3)}$ We simplify above and below the fraction bar with subtraction: $m=\frac{4}{0}$ Since any number divided by $0$ is undefined, the slope of this line is undefined.
