Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, well, to find the slope between two coordinates, you use this formula for two coordinates (x1,y1) and (x2, y2): 1. slope = (y2  y1)/(x2  x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in the case of your problem: x1 = 2, x2 = 1, y1 = 7, and y2 = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, the slope is one number, that basically represents "for every x coordinate I move to the right, how many y coordinates do I move up?"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the slope = (y2  y1)/(x2  x1) = (2  7)/ (1  (2))
