$m=\dfrac{3}{4}$

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: The slope $m$ of a line that passes through the points $(x_1, y_1)$ and $(x_2, y_2)$ is given by the formula: $m=\dfrac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$ Substitute the x and y coordinates of the given points to obtain: $m=\dfrac{-5-(-2)}{6-10} \\m=\dfrac{-5+2}{-4} \\m=\dfrac{-3}{-4} \\m=\dfrac{3}{4}$
