i know u gave me the formula i dont understand it though
you can totally do this! \[\frac{ y-y_1 }{ x-x_1 }\] just plug in the numbers...

um....i cant lol im not smart
(-2,-1) and (-4, 4)...let's start with what are your y-coordinates?
coordinates/ordered pairs are always written as (x,y).
1 and 4
check again...negatives matter
-1,4?
bingo! ok, so let's plug that in...\[\frac{ y-y_1 }{ x-x_1 }=\frac{ -1-4 }{ x-x_1 }\]
now let's figure out our x-coordinates...
then -2,4
your coordinates are (-2,-1) and (-4,4) so I agree with -2 being an x-coordinate, but what's the first number in the 2nd set of coordinates?
-4
ok, so this is the tricky part...
\[\frac{ -1-4 }{ -2--4 }\]
do you see how -1 is the first number on top and -2 is the first number on the bottom? That's because those 2 numbers go together (-2,-1)
there is only one -4
ya
the denominator (bottom) says -2 minus -4
oh lol srry
it's ok :) do you know how to subtract negative numbers?
ya
-6
after this i have one more
-2-(-4) isn't going to equal -6. that would be true if you were adding, but you're subtracting.
subtracting a negative is like adding a positive...so instead of -2-(-4) think -2+4
oh so then 2
perfect, what about the top number?
-1-4
-5
so put it all together and you have your slope! -5/2
thnk you so much
you are so very welcome! I wish I could stay and help more, but I have work in the morning. Good luck on the rest of your problems!
