Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use the point slope formula, yy1=m(xx1) The M is your slope. You will have to use y2y1/x2x1 to get slope and plug it in for M.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find your y2 value (which is 3) and subtract it from your Y1 value (which is 7) Divide that by your x2 value  X1 value. I will let you find x2 and x1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2slope = (y2  y1) / (x2  x1) slope = (37) / (12) slope = 4 / 3 slope = 4/3 FINAL ANSWER
