Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you tell me the slope of y = 2/3x  5/2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In y = mx + b form, the slope will be the number in the m position. Can you tell me the slope now ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1433342536124:dw My drawing sucks but 3/1 I think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0watch this.... y = mx + b y = (2/3)x  5/2 the number in the m position is the slope...so the slope is 2/3 are you still following how I got that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but we are looking for a perpendicular line...so we need the negative reciprocal slope. All that means is " flip " the slope and change the sign. So our perpendicular slope has to be 3/2......see how I flipped the slope and changed the sign ? Understand so far ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yup, reciprocals were always the easiest thing for me XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0don't forget about changing the sign.... so our answer has to have a slope of 3/2 do you know how to find the slopes of your answer choices ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do the same thing as you did with the question ?? Or do I do it normally

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a formula...yes, like there wasn't enough already...probably a zillion formulas...anyways, the formula is : slope = (y2  y1) / (x2  x1) do you want me to show you how to label your points and find the slope ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I got it So like for answer A. It'd be m = (y2y1) / (x2  x1) m = (6  3) / (2  2) ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0almost...pay close attention to your numbers and signs (4,3) and (2, 6) slope = (6  3) / (2 (4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for A.. slope = (6  3) / (2  (4) slope = 9/ (2 + 4) slope = 9/2........we need a slope of 3/2,,,so this is not correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 6  3 = 9 2  4 = 2 m = 9/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is the slope of those points...but we need a slope of 3/2...so thats not it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We were thinking the same thing lol. Anyway so for Answer B. (6  (3) / (2  (4) 6  3 = 9 2  4 = 6 9/6 so that one is incorrect too

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(4,3) / (2,6) slope is 9/6...but that reduces...what does that reduce to ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it reduces to 3/2...but we need 3/2....so this is not correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0gotta watch for those stupid signs...they will mess with your head...lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C. (6  3) / (2  (4) 6  3 = 9 2  4 = 6 9/6 reduce 3/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(4,3) / (2,6) ... (6  3) / (2  (4) 9/6 reduces to 3/2......yep...you got it...WAY TO GO giving you a medal..you deserve it :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm pretty good in geometry XD It's algebra I suck at

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am kinda the opposite....can handle algebra pretty well...just know about the basics in geometry
