    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.

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

    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?
