I think the answer is  1/5, but I need an A so I need to be positive. Heres the question: What is the slope of the line containing the ordered pair (2, 3) and (4, 0)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its not 1/5 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.
