Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Given the points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), the slope is (y2y1)/(x2x1). Go and do the math. It works. Every time!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you first take the difference of y values, then take difference of x values, then just divide them...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, whats the difference of y values?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do u have difficulty figuring out y values ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Should be as difficult as the x values ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no...y values are 1 and 6, right ? so, 1(6) =... ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OHHHHH WOULD THE ANSWER BE 6/7 THEN?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OHHH i see now, i was thinkin go up not down.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1THe 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so would it be 7/6 then?
