    formula of making linear equation is (y-y1)/(y2-y1)=(x-x1)/(x2-x1) at last the ratio of x is the slope

    1. -2/5 2. 0 3. -6/7 EXP: 1. (3-5)/(7-2)=-2/5 2. (-2--2)/(2-11)=0 3. (3-9)/(5--2) The formula is: (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

    The rule is : y2-y1/x2-x1 just substitute the numbers in the question in the rule and you'll have the correct answer

    for example the first one will be : 3-5/7-2 = -2/5

    so i tried what you said on this Find the slope of line passing through the points (4,8) and (6, -2). and got -6/2 which is -3 but neither option is there.
