## anonymous one year ago Based on the table of values below, find the slope between points where x = 2 and where x = 6. x y 2 12 4 10 6 4 −3 −2 −1 negative one half

If x =2, y = 12 according to the table. That gives us the ordered pair (2,12) If x =6, y =4 according to the table. That gives us the ordered pair (6,4) Use this equation to find the slope which is called m: $m=\frac{y _{2}-y _{1}}{x _{2}-x _{1}}$

so it would be d @Mertsj

4. Mertsj

What did you get when you subtracted the y values?

5. anonymous

ok so it is c?@Mertsj

6. Mertsj

Did you subtract the y values?

7. anonymous

yea @mertsj
