## anonymous one year ago What is the slope of the line passing through (1, 2) and (3, 8)? slope =1/7 slope = 1/3 slope = 3 slope = 7

1. MrNood

the 2 brackets ar (x1,y1) & (x2,y2) write down the value of y2-y1 write down the value of x2-x1

2. anonymous

1,3 2,8

3. MrNood

what is y2- y1? what is x2 - x1 (subtract the numbers...)

4. anonymous

ohh okay

6. MrNood

So - are you going to do those 2 subtractions?

so it will be 6/2

9. MrNood

correct and simplified 6/2 = ??

10. anonymous

how you simplified

11. MrNood

! $\frac{ 6 }{ 2 } is the same as 6\div2$

12. anonymous

so the slope will be 3
