Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need to use the slope formula:\[\frac{ y _{1}  y _{2} }{ x _{1}  x _{2} }\]where your given points are (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). So, x1= 0, y1 = 3, x2 = 0, and y2 = 5. Now, make the substitutions, and if you don't have a "0" in the denominator, you will get a real number answer. If you get a "0" in the denominator, your slope is "undefined" and you have a vertical line connecting the points. Try this now and see what you get. Show your work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, that's a zero in the denominator, so you look at my first post and do what you have to do when you have a "0" in the denominator. The answer is already there.
