    Do you know how to get to the slope?

    (x1,y1)...(x2,y2) m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)

    where (x1,y1)...(x2,y2) are ordered pairs like (2,3) or (0,4)

    ok are you looking for the slope of the parallel line that contains (0,5)?

    The points given are: (-3,0) = (x1,y1) and ( 0,5) = (x2,y2) Plug these values in the equation you gave me.

    yes but the way he has writtin it is that horizontal line that contains (3,0)

    parallel line contains (5,0)

    Can you clarify your question Pinkwhispers80? It seems to have a bit of a wording problem.

    that would mean both lines have no slope

    because they would both be horizontal

    When two lines are parallel, they simply would not have a slope Whispers

    I have a graph that contains a line with points being (-3,0) and (0,5) I need to find the slope but Im not sure how

    do are you given a horizontal line and parallel line or both points on one line?

    just weird to use the words horizontal and parallel because that says they are two sperate lines
