    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.

    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

    Okay, so take the formula that Lyn did above and substitute the numbers into it |dw:1443128462342:dw|

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

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

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

    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?

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

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

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

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