if youre trying the formula, then you are most likely like me and have placed something in the wrong spot

(-4,4) will be (x1,y1) (-1,-2) will be (x2,y2)

then it will be: -2-4 over -1- (-4) = -6 over 3 = -3

i do a vertical method, subtracting down the columns (-4,4) -(-1-2) ------- (-3,6) , now slope is defined as y/x 6/-3

wait what.. i did it so wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
you just subtract?
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's not how we were shown to do it so i dont think i could do it that way..

my method is to stack one point on top of the other, and subtract down the columns
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's not the right way to do it though..

  • amistre64
it is the right way to do it ...
anonymous
  • anonymous
but i usually get it right.. how come this time something went wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
no its not
anonymous
  • anonymous
look how i did it ^^

\[\frac{ -2-4 }{ -1-(-4) } - \frac{ -6 }{3 } = -2\] ohhhhh
anonymous
  • anonymous
i just put -6 divided by 3 = -3, instead of -2!!!!!!!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok that's the stupidest mistake ever

take 2 points: (xo,yo) and (x1, y1) stack them and subtract (its just a method to organize the information) (xo,yo) -(x1, y1) --------- xo-x1, yo-y1 , you still get the same information; now slope is defined as y/x yo - y1 ------- xo - x1

i just waste 5 mins

since i tend to place the wrong value into the wrong places .... i organize the data in a more convenient manner that is harder to mess it up
