know the formula to find slope ?

The slope of the line through points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is given by : \(\huge m=\frac{y_1y_2}{x_1x_2}\) now,just put the values and find m.

so what slope did u get ?

I don't understand slope can you explain how i am supposed to set up the equation and then i could solve it

First point , (0,10) compare it with (x1,y1) u get x1=0, y1=10 in same way find x2 and y2 and put all these 4 values in the formula i gave you to find slope =m

so would it be 0,4/10,0 for the equation?

the numerator has yvalues

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so in the numerator, its 100 got this ? what will be in the denominator then ?
 one year ago

kenyababii123Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the denominator would be 40 ?

u missed a  *minus* sign \(\huge 0(4)= 0+4=? \)
 one year ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
one minus sign comes from formula and one from the fact that the coordinate itself is negative , its 4

kenyababii123Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so would the equation be 100/0+4
 one year ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes! correct :) m=(100)/(0+4)
 one year ago

kenyababii123Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
hold on im working out the problem now
 one year ago

kenyababii123Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so the answer would be 5/2
