y2-y1over x2-x1

\[Slope = \frac{\Delta y}{\Delta x} = \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2 - x_1}\]
Right.

- anonymous

i think im not sure

- anonymous

So use the two points on the line s to find the slope of s.

- anonymous

can you do it for me please im not fealling good i cant think right

- anonymous

If you are not feeling well, you should be resting, not doing math.

- anonymous

well i have to do this or i will get a 0 in my class

- anonymous

i have no choice

- anonymous

Ok then, go for it.

- anonymous

what do you mean?

- anonymous

i will try just for you lol

wait how do you do it when you use the equation?

- anonymous

which points do u use in the equation?

- anonymous

You pick two points that are on the line you are solving the slope for.
Those points are \((x_1,y_1)\text{ and } (x_2,y_2)\)

- anonymous

so (2,7) and (6,1) ?

- anonymous

Yep

- anonymous

oh ok thx so much

- anonymous

i got -6/4

- anonymous

is that right?

- anonymous

Yep. That is the slope of the line s.

- anonymous

i need to know an equation

- anonymous

how do i use a slope for the equation?

- anonymous

how do i use slope to find the equation?

- anonymous

hello?

- anonymous

you suck
