## Mr.Niceguy420 2 years ago Find the slope of the line passing through (11, -2) and (2, -2). A. 4/9 B. 9 C. 0 D. Undefined

1. UnkleRhaukus

$(x_1,y_1),\qquad (x_2,y_2)$ the slope is the RISE / RUN Rise is $$y_2-y_1$$ Run is $$x_2-x_1$$

3. UnkleRhaukus

you tell me ,

4. Mr.Niceguy420

idk a

5. UnkleRhaukus

have you found the rise ?

6. UnkleRhaukus

in this case the rise is $(-2)-(-2)$

7. UnkleRhaukus

and the run is $$(2)-(11)$$

8. Mr.Niceguy420

ok

9. UnkleRhaukus

maybe a diagram could help

10. Mr.Niceguy420

yea

14. Mr.Niceguy420

k

15. UnkleRhaukus

notice how there is no rise ?

16. Mr.Niceguy420

yes

17. UnkleRhaukus

remembering that the slope $$m$$ is rise over run $m=\frac{0}{9}=$

18. Mr.Niceguy420

ok

19. Mr.Niceguy420

ok thanks

Mr.Niceguy420 the idea here is to learn. After all, if you find a question like this in the future (which you will) then you need to know how to do it yourself.

22. UnkleRhaukus

you may have came to the wrong place Mr.Niceguy420

23. UnkleRhaukus

what are you going to do in exam?

24. UnkleRhaukus

wont get through school that way

Just so you know. I'm in Calc now and this stuff is still coming back. Mr.Niceguy420, cheating ultimately just hurts yourself.

26. Mr.Niceguy420

im not cheating im using resources

Using your resources during a test is cheating unless it's open computer open book.

(Unless your brain is the resource ;) )

29. Mr.Niceguy420

well peace \]
