Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To calculate the slope you must find the difference in y divided by difference in x. Use this rule: \[\frac{ y2y1 }{ x2x1 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok So I wrote the first point is (4,1) so it will be (x1,y1) The second point is (7,2) so it will be in terms of ( x2,y2)
