The slope of the line through points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is given by : \(\huge m=\frac{y_1y_2}{x_1x_2}\) now,just put the values and find m.

Given the points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), the slope is (y2y1)/(x2x1). Go and do the math. It works. Every time!

Is it possible to have it in simple terms lol?

you first take the difference of y values, then take difference of x values, then just divide them...

so, whats the difference of y values?

Should be as difficult as the x values ;)

no...y values are 1 and 6, right ? so, 1(6) =... ?

There is another way. Imagine you are at the leftmost point, (3,1). Now, to get to the rightmost point, (3,6) you have to go 6 steps to the right, and 7 steps down (just count), so a vertical move of 7. Now ask yourself: what is the vertical move if I would go 1 (one) step to the right along the line? That is its slope.

OHHHHH WOULD THE ANSWER BE 6/7 THEN?

ZeHanz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No, it would be negative, because you have to go down if you go from the leftmost to the rightmost point. Further, while you go 6 steps to the right, you go 7 steps down, so that is more than 1 unit per step...

OHHH i see now, i was thinkin go up not down.

So what is the answer?

THe minus sign is good. Now think about 6/7: it is smaller than 1. That is not good, because if you go 1 unit to the right, you go more than 1 unit down...

wait so would it be 7/6 then?
