## anonymous one year ago what is the slope of the line that contains the points (0,4) and (4, -2)

1. anonymous

(x1,y1)=(0,4) and (x2,y2)=(4,-2) slope of the line =(y2-y1)/(x2-x1) hence=> -2-4/4-0 =>-6/4 =-3/2 :)

thanks

$\frac{ y _{2}-y _{2} }{ x _{2}-x _{1} }=\frac{ -2-4 }{ 4-0 }=\frac{ -6 }{ 4 }=\frac{ -3 }{ 2 }$
