    Below are two different functions, f(x) and g(x). What can be determined about their slopes? f(x)= −1x + 1 The function g of x going through 0, 3 and 2, negative 1 The function f(x) has a larger slope. The function g(x) has a larger slope. They both have the same slope. The relationship between slopes cannot be determined.

    Well. any line equation has form \(y = mx+b\) Here, m is slope and b is y-intercept. So in question, you have \(f(x) = -1x + 1\). Can you tell me what m is?

    so the slope of f(x) is -1

    Sorry for late reply, but yes -1 Now for g(x), are you familiar with \(slope = \dfrac{rise}{run}\)?
