## anonymous 4 years ago Find the slope m = y^2-y^1 --------- x^2- x^1 of a line passing through the given points. (3,3) and (4,0)

1. sasogeek

is that the formula for the slope? :s

2. anonymous

Substitute the values for x and y: $\frac{ 0 - 3 }{ 4 - 3 }$

3. anonymous

so i just solve that :)

4. anonymous

Yes

slope of a line passing through the given points : $$(x_1,y_1)$$ and $$(x_2,y_2)$$ $\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$

6. anonymous

-3 is what i got :)

7. anonymous

That helps explain the values of the formula very well^

Nice work(:

Thanks everyone :)
