    if we are given 2 points, how do we calculate the slope between them?

    you will have to find us something called a "slope formula", there is not much to do without it.

    as a shortcut, we only need the top of it tho, unless they want they actual slopes ... but this is jsut asking to order them

    good, now since they all have the same x2-x1, we can ignore that part and just work out y2-y1

    hmm, lets make sure you know how to read the notation then h(x) is a function named "h" which depends on the value of x for its output. look in the table for the function of h, and what is our output when x=3? and when x=-1?
