## anonymous one year ago What is the slope of the line that passes through the points (–2, 5) and (1, 11)? A.-6 B.-2 C.1/2 D.2

1. sepeario

Do you know the formula to find the gradient of a line?

2. sepeario

I'll write it for you anyway: $\frac{ y _{2}-y _{1} }{ x _{2}-x _{1} }$

3. sepeario

So can you substitute values from the points you are given to find the slope of the line?

4. anonymous

Ohhh right I forgot sorry thank you! Yes I can

5. sepeario

all good! just tell me your answer so i can check if it's correct.

11/15 = 6 1 - -2 = 3 6/3 simplified is 2?

7. sepeario

nice! haha i think you meant 11-5 not 11/15 :)
