## starrhunter 3 years ago What is the slope of the line which passes through (4, 7) and (2, 3)?

1. ParthKohli

$$\color{Black}{\Rightarrow Slope = \Large{\Delta y \over \Delta x} = {y_2 - y_1 \over x_2 - x_1} }$$

2. starrhunter

is it 3?

3. ParthKohli

-2/-2

4. ParthKohli

I find that to be 1.

5. starrhunter

oh... thank you

6. starrhunter

but wouldnt it just be -2 then?

7. ParthKohli

Wait, it'd be 2.

8. ParthKohli

$$\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \large{3 - 7 \over2 - 4} }$$ $$\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \large{-4 \over -2} }$$ $$\color{Black}{\Rightarrow 2 }$$
