## anonymous one year ago find the slope of the line that passes though the pair of points (1,7),(10,1)

1. anonymous

$\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}=\frac{1-7}{10-1}$

2. anonymous

ok

3. anonymous

help

4. anonymous

it is arithmetic from there on in i am sure you can do the subtraction

5. anonymous

that would be 6/9 but thats not one of my answers

6. anonymous

no it is not for sure for example $$1-7$$ is not $$6$$

7. anonymous

-6?

8. anonymous

yes

9. anonymous

thats still not one of my answers

10. anonymous

of course $-\frac{6}{9}$ is not an answer choice either

11. anonymous

because that fraction is not in lowest terms you can reduce it

12. anonymous

to - 3/2?

13. anonymous

no

14. anonymous

i mean -2/3

15. anonymous

yes

16. anonymous
