## anonymous one year ago ill fan & medal :) Choose the correct slope of the line that passes through the points (1, −3) and (3, −5). −1 1 0 one half

1. Nnesha

$\huge\bf \frac{ y_2 - y_1 }{ x_2 -x_1}$ formula to find slope x and y values are $\large\rm (x_1 ,y_1) (x_2 ,y_2)$

2. anonymous

-5 - 3 -3 - 1 (1,3) (-3,-5)

3. pooja195

$\huge\bf \frac{ -5+3 }{ 3 -1}$

4. pooja195

Can you solve :) and have it in fraction form?

5. anonymous

-2/2

6. pooja195

good :) whats -2 divided by 2 ?

7. anonymous

-1

8. pooja195

Good so our slope is...?

9. anonymous

-1 ?

10. pooja195

Actually lets leave it -2/2 i dont think we can simplfy a slope

11. pooja195

So our slope is -2/2

12. anonymous

thank you but also the answer choice can be -1

13. pooja195

14. anonymous

-1 1 0 1/2

15. pooja195

ok yea they want the simplfied form therefore -1 (what we came up with) is correct :) so i guess slopes can be simplifed :)

16. anonymous

:) thank you so much
