m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) m = (-3-2)/(1-(-4)) m = (-3-2)/(1+4) I'll let you finish

im confused between your answer(@cinar) and the other answer
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
cinar is just pointing how how x1 is -4, y1 is 2, etc etc

what's -3-2 = ??? 1+4 = ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
-3-2=-5? 1+4=5? so m=5,5?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you divide the two though and one of those is negative
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
which means your final slope is negative
anonymous
  • anonymous
why would I divide the 2?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
because it's rise/run
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
rise is the change in y run is the change in x

jim did not say to divide by 2.... he said divide the two....
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
i think he meant "divide the two numbers" not by "divide by 2"
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh.. yur right... :)

jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
