## Ilovemeowmeow Group Title What is the slope of a line that passes through the point (−2, 3) and is parallel to a line that passes through (3, 7) and (−2, −8)? one year ago one year ago

1. 3psilon Group Title

Use the slope formula with the two last points $\frac{ y_{2 } - y_{1}}{ x_{2}-x_{1} }$

2. 3psilon Group Title

That will give you the Slope for the last two points

3. Ilovemeowmeow Group Title

Okay let me work it out tell me if its correct..

4. 3psilon Group Title

So the slope would be $\frac{ -8-7 }{ -2-3} = -15/-5 ==$

5. 3psilon Group Title

Slope = 3

6. 3psilon Group Title

And we know that parallel lines have the same slope

7. Ilovemeowmeow Group Title

I did it and got 3! thank you!

8. 3psilon Group Title

Did you plug in the slope in y = mx + b form? and plug the first coordinates into that and solve for b?
