The slope is zero.

Work Step by Step

To find the slope, we use the formula: $$m = \frac{y_{2} - y_{1}}{x_{2} - x_{1}}$$ We now plug in points we find on the graph of the line into this equation to find the slope of this line. We will use the points $(-2, 2)$ and $(3, 2)$: $$m = \frac{2 - 2}{3 - (-2)}$$ Simplify: $$m = \frac{0}{5}$$ Simplify the fraction: $$m = 0$$
