alright so write point A and B in order pair
A(? ,? ) point B( ? , ?) on the graph :-)

- Nnesha

for example point A ( 0 ,0)
so point B (? ,? ) ?

- Spring98

1,2

- Spring98

i mean (6,2)

- Nnesha

yes right now use slope formula \[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2 - y_1 }{ x_2 - x_1 }\]
plug in x and y values

- Spring98

12, and 4?

- Nnesha

nope plug in x and y values
how did you get 12 and 4 ?

- Spring98

i squared it

- Nnesha

nope y_2 it is not square
that's mean 2nd y

- Nnesha

y_1 first y
y_2 2nd y
which is y_2 = 2
y_1 = 0

- Nnesha

\[\huge\rm \frac{ 2-0 }{ 6-0 }\]
like this
x_1=0
x_2 =6
y_1=0
y_2 = 2

- Spring98

ok so how do i find the answer?

- Nnesha

solve that

- Spring98

i don't know how to

- Spring98

it doesn't make sence to me

- Nnesha

\[\huge\rm \frac{ 2-0 }{ 6-0 } = ?\]

- Nnesha

why not ?

- Spring98

2/6

- Nnesha

\[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2 - y_1 }{ x_2 - x_1 }\]
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

- Nnesha

2/6 reduce the fraction

- Spring98

1/3

- Nnesha

yes right that's a slope of points A and B
now find slope of points B and C just like did

- Spring98

there is only 3 left

- Nnesha

what do you mean ?

- Spring98

there is only 3 left out of the numbers.

- Nnesha

how do you know both didn't get same slope ?

- Nnesha

point B is (6,2) what is point C (?? , ??)

- Spring98

oh sorry i got off track its (16,8)

- Nnesha

yes right now find slope between B and C points use slope formula
(6,2)(16,8) find slope

- Spring98

how do i do that?

- Nnesha

just like we did for point A and B
use that formula plug in x and y values

- Spring98

can you tell me how?

- Nnesha

|dw:1433385627509:dw|
now plug in numbers

- Nnesha

ello what did you get ??
try it plz!

- Spring98

can ou help me?

- Agl202

Yo susa

- Spring98

what the?

- Spring98

tu sho?

- Agl202

Ay vay

- Spring98

medal me
