Do you know the definition of "slope"?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes it's te measure of steepness
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Good, what the slope in the equation: $$\huge y = \frac{4}{9}x – 2$$
anonymous
  • anonymous
in this equation it's 4/9x
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Not quite, but close...why did you include the x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because it is connected to 4/9
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Yes, it is multiplied by x, but the "slope" is a constant for a line and it has a fixed value any where on that line, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes that is right
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
So what is the slope?

@DAshingNii : When you want to find it remember always we have it : If the slopes have this : m1 . m2 = -1 The lines are perpendicular ! Understand ?!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
te slope is 4/9
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is it your answer ?!
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Yes that is right.

The answer is 4/9 . -1 = -9/4 Understand ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it's supposed to be an equation or something
