## anonymous 4 years ago What is the slope of the line which passes through (-2, 0) and (0, 4)? -2 zero 2 Undefined

The slope is given by: $\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$ Letting $(x_1, y_1) = (-2, 0), (x_2, y_2) = (0,4)$ we see that $\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1} = \frac{4-0}{0-(-2)} = \frac{4}{2} = 2$ so the slope of the line is 2.
