## DallasLifeBaby01 one year ago What is the slope of a line that passes through points (-1, 4) and (4, 9)? 1) -1 2) 3/5 3)1 4)5/3

1. Astrophysics

$m = \frac{ y_{2}-y _{1} }{ x _{2}-x _{1} }$ slope formula (m represents slope) where your coordinates are $(x_1,y_1)~~~(x_2,y_2)$ respectively.

I'm still having trouble following I'm babysitting some kids and i I'm trying to check their homework

3. DallasLifeBaby01

and i can't figure the answer

4. jim_thompson5910

subtract the y coordinates subtract the x coordinates (same order) divide the differences (y over x)

oh okay
