The problem is "Find the slope of the line passing through the two points and indicate whether the line rises or falls."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now I figured out that the answer was -2/2,= -2 and that it falls, but I'm not sure if they want me to simplify in this particular case. Any ideas? Because the answer can simplifly to -1 and falling.
