Are you familiar with y = mx + b?
yes
i know how to find the slope i just dont know how to find out whether if it falls, rises that stuff

Okay, good, now, I'm going to simply plug each point into that formula: -3 = 14m + b 11 = 4m + b Are you with me so far?
yes
Okay, m is the slope, so I'm going to isolate b in both equations: b = -3 - 14m b = 11 - 4m Do you see how I got that?
kinda
It takes a little practice to understand it, but now I'm going to set b = b to get: -3 - 14m = 11 - 4m
Now all I have to do is solve for m: -3 - 11 = 14m - 4m -14 = 10m -14/10 = m - 7/5 = m
There we go
ok i was wait thats not right
You entered the answer as soon as I posted it, lol
kk i got that too
haha yeah
You shouldn't enter the answer so fast :P I guess I can take my own advice in that regard.
okay
Sometimes, I make typos, so you should wait at least one minute after someone posts their answer.
um ok
My fingers are not as bright as my brain
Sometimes, my fingers hit keys they shouldn't.
oh okay its a
all G
By the way, If the slope is NEGATIVE, it FALLS If the slope is POSITIVE, it RISES
always?
If something falls, it's always going down, right? If a plane rises from the ground, it is always going up, right?
right

ohh i see
Yeah just think about a plane either taking a nose dive or lift off
ohh okay thank u!
