Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes right now use slope formula \[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2  y_1 }{ x_2  x_1 }\] plug in x and y values

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2  y_1 }{ x_2  x_1 }\] formula to find slope between A and B point A(0,0) B(6,2) that's how i plug in x and y values now just solve reduce the fraction
