## Daniel_Chernioglo one year ago What is the slope of the line between (3, -4) and (-2, 1)? May I please get help with this? Thanks

This is the formula for slope, m, given two points $m=\frac{ y_2-y_1 }{ x_2-x_1 }$ Pick (3, -4) to be $$(x_1,y_1)$$ and (-2, 1) to be $$(x_2,y_2)$$.

Then plug them into the formula $m=\frac{ 1-(-4) }{ -2-3 }$ and evaluate

ok so} answer is: 5/1 which equals 5?

4. anonymous

no. the numerator is 5. Check your work on the denominator

5. Daniel_Chernioglo

oh lol, it = -5, so the answer is -1?

6. anonymous

yes
