What are you given to find the slope?
 one year ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
If given two points on a line, then use the slope formula: \[m=\frac{y_2y_1}{x_2x_1}\]

cv2001Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
A slope is the change in Y over the change in X. In other words, the incline or decline of a line. In this case, the line suggested by these points has a slope of (8+5), the change in Y divided by (4+5), the change in X 13/1 = 13

That gives you slope. To remember that it's "rise over run." (58)/(4+3)...which would be 13/1...so that's up 13 units and to the right 1.

Now we connect the two points with a straight line and find the slope.
