    Hint: |x| > k breaks into x < -k or x > k where k is some positive number

    you're correct, it's 0 how do I know so quickly? notice that the y coordinates are both equal to 3 since the y coordinates are equal, the slope will always be 0 because you have a horizontal line through y = 3

    using m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1) we get m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1) m = (3 - 3)/(2/3 - (-5/4)) m = 0/(2/3 - (-5/4)) m = 0
