$$\sf\Large Slope ~formula = \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$$

5. TheSmartOne

where the two points are in the form of: $$\sf\Large (x_1,y_1)$$ and $$\sf\Large (x_2,y_2)$$

So can you give me the coordinates and I will try to solve it?

7. TheSmartOne

Point A (-2,2) Point B (4,-1)

8. anonymous

okay so I got - 1/2

9. TheSmartOne
