For the first one, you are given two points....calculate the slope using this method:

https://web2.0calc.com/questions/what-is-the-slope-of-the-line-that-contains-the-points_1

 

For the second one,  the mid point will be given by the averages of the x and y values

 I'll do the 'x' one.....you do the 'y' one

 (x1 + x2)   / 2 =  (1+5)/2 = 3   = x point of the midpoint.....now for the y:

?

Point 1   (-1, -2)

point 2   (2,3)

 

(y1-y2) / ( x1-x2)

(-2-3) / (-1-2) = -5/-3 = 5/3
