Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0point slope formula: (y2y1) = m(x1x2) solve for m by using the points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) by plugging in the values for x1,x2,y1, and y2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know, but they are one and the same concept based question. If you can find the slope of first, then by using same formula, you can find second one too. :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In first point (2,15), first is x1 value and second is y1 value. In second point (8,5), first is x2 value and second is y2 value..
