#### Explanation:

the slope $m$ can be given through the relation

$\frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}} = m$

You can assume any point to be $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ and the other will be

$\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$

$\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) = \left(- 2 , - 32\right)$

$\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(6 , 0\right)$

$\frac{0 - \left(- 32\right)}{6 - \left(- 2\right)} = 4$

The straight lines slope $\left(m\right) = 4$
