****Step 3:

**Slope is Rise/Run. -3 divided by 1 is just -3 so we can simplify the answer. Double check the sign of your answer. The line is going down to the right, so the slope should be negative.**

Be extra careful when the line goes down to the right. A common mistake is to make both the rise and the run negative.
