1. dakotajason27 Group Title

slope formula is y2 -y1 over x2-x1 so just solve that aquation

2. lvasquev462 Group Title

will it be 1/12?

Ok well in our coordinate pair For example lets take (-2, -5) our -2 is our x value and -5 is our y value

4. lvasquev462 Group Title

will it be -3/12

5. swissgirl Group Title
