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.

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

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

hartnn Group TitleBest 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

kenyababii123 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so would the equation be 100/0+4

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes! correct :) m=(100)/(0+4)
