If given two points on a line, then use the slope formula: \[m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\]

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

hope that helps

  • anonymous
kinda
anonymous
  • anonymous
That gives you slope. To remember that it's "rise over run." (-5-8)/(-4+3)...which would be 13/1...so that's up 13 units and to the right 1.

does it help now

Do you know how I plotted the points?

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

Label one point "2" and the other "1"

Now the "slope intercept" form of the equation of this line is y = mx + b where b is the y-intercept.
anonymous
  • anonymous
???
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Have you not covered the equation of a line yet?
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
y = 6x + 2
