## anonymous 3 years ago What is the slope of the line which passes through (2, 6) and (0, 2)?

A. 2 B. -3 C. 4 D. -2

Slope equals the change in y over the change in x so (2-6)/(0-2)=-4/-2 = 2

Remember, slope is $(y2-y1)\(x2-x1)$ Simply plug in your numbers, $(2-6)/(0-2)$ $(-4)/(-2)$ which is equal to 2.

2 was my answer :) I was hoping i was right! Thanks guys

ok this is simple. Remember the formula for slope$m = \frac{ y _{1}-y _{2} }{ x _{1}-x _{2} }$

dang you win jon you win

Yes! I forgot the formula at a very bad time. I was guessing 2:)

do you remember the point slope form of a line and the slope intercept form?
