## Elementary Algebra

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 given: $m=\frac{4-(-1)}{-1-2}$ We simplify above and below the fraction bar using subtraction: $m=\frac{5}{-3}$ Then, we move the negative sign out front: $m=-\frac{5}{3}$ $-\frac{5}{3} \ne \frac{5}{3}$, so the statement is false.
