    See, -(-) = + So, 1 - (-4) becomes 1 + 4 getting??

    so you found y change = 5.. Now similarly tell me the change in x coordinates..

    Yes.. Now, \[Slope = \frac{y \; change}{x \; change}\] Can you do it now??

    is in between -2 and 2

    See, the other formula of slope is: \[Slope = \frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}\]

  20. waterineyes

    \[Slope = \frac{1 - (-4)}{-2-3} = \frac{5}{-5} = -1\]

    Is -1 not between 2 and -2??

    \(-2, -1, 0 , 1, 2\) It is between 2 and -2..
