So basically
5 - (-4) over 2 - 0
Solve this and it is the slope. Remember the equation @LynFran gave you - it's a very simple and helpful formula when it comes to finding the slope of a line.

- Timinthor

What is the slope of the line passing through the points (2, 5) and (0, −4)?

- Timinthor

wait i think thats the wrong one

- Cresciez

It's the same exact one xD

- Timinthor

What is the slope of the line passing through the points (–3, 4) and (2, –1)?
A.
–1
B.
1
C.
Begin fraction three over five end fraction
D.
Negative begin fraction five over three end fraction

- Timinthor

im not sure why for c and d they cam out like that

- Timinthor

c is 3/5 and d is -5/3

- Cresciez

Okay, so take the formula that Lyn did above and substitute the numbers into it

- Timinthor

okay, one sec im figuring it out

- Cresciez

Lyn we're on a different question now O.o

- Cresciez

@Timinthor
Make it a fraction now: y1 - y2 over x1 - x2 <- but put the numbers for the variables ^.^

- Timinthor

okay

- Cresciez

Tell me when you finish that step and I can walk you through the rest too :^)

- Timinthor

okay, i have it all written out, so it should look like|dw:1443128896791:dw| sorry for the bad handwritting lol

- LynFran

o ok ..im between question lol

- Cresciez

You need to switch the numbers - this is an essential step. I had this same problem when I did these :P

- Cresciez

so -1 - 4 over -2 - (-3)

- Timinthor

okay, i probably didnt do it correctly but i did, 4-(-1) which = 5
then (-3) -2 which also = 5 so would it be 5/5?

- Cresciez

5/5 yes - 5/5 also equals 1 or a whole, so if they have that answer, that would be appropriate as well

- Cresciez

Oh no wait lol one sec :P

- Timinthor

okay, i just did it again and got -5 haha, would it be positive or negative?

- Cresciez

-1 - 4 = -5
-2-(-3) = 5
so it's -5 over 5

- Cresciez

If one is negative, it affects the entire answer, it yor answer should be -5/5 or -1

- Cresciez

:3

- Timinthor

okay, so negative then

- Timinthor

Thank you guys so much!

- Cresciez

No problem! :D

- Timinthor

@Cresciez , do you mind checking my work for the first one?

- Timinthor

- Timinthor

- Cresciez

Yes, you're right ~

- Timinthor

okay, thank you for your help!
