What is the value of x? (x,1) and (-5,-6); slope: 7/6
I did the problem but I got a funky number that doesn't seem right. I got 19/6 and it doesnt seem correct somehow
Yeah, I understand that part. Then I subtract -6 minus 1 and I get -7
@Luigi0210 Can you please explain this problem?
Well there is another way to do it I guess, but dan's is the simplest
so then the value of x is 1? o.O
yup, we could do it my way if you want? But it's the longer way,
Yeah, let's try the longer way please
|dw:1378779944389:dw| So first what we would do is simplify the fractions down. Once we get that part done we cross-multiply
Wait, I just went over dan's work. and i understand what he was trying to do. Except that when i subtract -5-1 I get -6 not 6?
Maybe this will make it simpler|dw:1378780257869:dw|:
Oh since both of them are negative, it will become positive. Correct?
So technically I'm just substituting a number in to get 6 right?
okay thanks. i was complicating it more than i should've:)
