[latex]Slope = \frac{y_2 - y_2 }{x_2 - x_1} \\ \frac{8-2}{5 - (-4)} = \frac{2}{3} \\\boxed{\frac{2}{3}}[/latex]

The two points are in the form are [latex]\sf(x_1,y_1)~ and ~(x_2,y_2)[/latex] The slope formula is [latex]\huge{\sf{slope= \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1} }}[/latex] So plugging in our two points we get [latex] \frac{8-2}{5-(-4)} =\frac{6}{5+4} = \frac{6}{9} = \frac{2}{3}[/latex] So the slope is 2/3
