use the slope formula
\[\huge~\frac{ y2-y2 }{ x2-x1 }\]
(x1,y1) (x2,y2)

omg why am i helping?! not supposed to help, byez
why not D: @uri
and i understand the formula i did it and got -4/6 i just am lossed from there.
its actually D
how do you figure?
\[\frac{ -8-7 }{ -4-1 }\]
  • uri
i love you and all but i cant bear kids like pooja @Swordsman1305
\[\frac{ -15 }{ -5 }=3\]
oh.. well pooj left
pooja formula was wrong she wrote y2-y2 and its actually y2-y1
black i thought i was supposed to do 8-4 and 7-1?
yes.. i think so>? pooja right?
y2 is -8 and y1 is 7 so -8-7= -15
x2 is -4 and x1 is 1 -4-1=5
well anyway i dont do y2= -8 y1= -4 x2 = 7 x1= 1 and then -8-(-4) 7-1 and get -4/6?
-5*
so what i did is the wrong way?
y1 is 7 not -4
x1=1 y1=7 x2=-4 y2=-8
ugh this is soo confusing i went off what you said here http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/556de732e4b01de5673c84b4 @Black_ninja123

so it was the wrong answer?
Use the example i just gave you
the answer is right
use this calc http://www.mathwarehouse.com/calculators/slope-formula-calculator.php
so the first one is right.. you just mixed up the formula set up a bit?
ok well just to clarrify this one is D and the last one i asked was the right one that you gave? correct?
ok thanks i gave u medal
