1. hartnn

The slope of the line through points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is given by : $$\huge m=\frac{y_1-y_2}{x_1-x_2}$$ now,just put the values and find m.

2. matricked

slopes btwn points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is given by (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

3. hartnn

@caught , so what did u get m=... ?

4. caught

-2 dont know if that correct

5. hartnn

only slope was asked..

6. hartnn

no, not -2, but close...

7. hba

@hartnn My bad lol :P

8. hartnn

what u got y1-y2 =.... ?

9. hba

m=y_2-y_1/x_2-x_1 (x_1,y_1)=(–3, 5) and (x_2,y_2)= (5, 1)?
