"For problems 1 & 2, find the slope of the line passing through the given points." The points are (6,15) and (4,5) for the first problem.
I don't want the answer, I want someone to walk me through it!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I substituted those, i switched it to y1y2 over x1x2. I got 10 over 2 which simplifies to 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can do that :) I learned it as y2y1/x2x1, but what you did is okay too :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And you got the right slope! Good job :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So is that all I would have to write for the answer, 5? Or do I have to do anything else? And The second problem is a little different, if you dont mind helping me with that after this :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They're just asking about the slope, so that's it. I don't mind helping at all :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you! That was more simple than what I thought it'd be! And I will take a picture of number 2 with my phone, it's a graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the first point (2,5)? I can't see it very well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Honestly, i can barely see it! All I can make out is the (5, 1) /:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it's (2,5) xD It's the same process as the last question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just use the y1y2/x1x2 formula :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay this is the last one, I swear. I havent done slope in two years. I have to do more problems and they're the ones I have trouble with  graphing. But for the problem 3, its "what is an equation of a line with slope 8 and y intercept 10?"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Np! y=mx+b m is your slope, so now you've got y=8x+b b is your yintercept, so plug in 10, and what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's a lot simpler than you think :o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would I do the y1y2 over X1x2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that would get your slope. then you plug in one of those coordinates to get your yintercept :o once you have your slope and yintercept you have your equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got the slope of 4, is that right? And how do I get y intercept? y=mx+b , would I say y=4x+ A random coordinate?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's the right slope.
