Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The slope of any line is defined by the difference between the ycoordinates of the points divided the difference between the xcoordinates, so, the formula looks like this: \[m _{ab}=\frac{ y_2y_1 }{x_2x_1 }\] So, applying it for the points: \[m=\frac{ 4(4) }{ 3(1) }\] So, all you have to do is operate the fraction and see what you obtain as a result.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not really, first off you have to operate the multiplication of negatives on both the numerator and denominator: \[m=\frac{ 4(4) }{ 3(1) }\] \[m=\frac{ 4+4 }{ 3+1 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, the difference between the x coordinates is "x2x1" which is below the division line.
