## anonymous 5 years ago can you help me with this one? Find the slope of a line parallel to the line that passes through the following points? (4, 0) and (3.8,2)

1. anonymous

are those the right coordinates?

2. anonymous

yes

3. anonymous

Slope equals rise over run, or the difference of the y co-ordinants over the difference in the x-coordinants. It doesn't matter which you pick as the first or second set of coordinants - just be consistent with your y and x orders. $m={{y_{2}-y_{1}}\over{x_{2}-x_{1}}}$
