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 (2, 5) and (0, −4)?
Timinthor
  • Timinthor
wait i think thats the wrong one
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
It's the same exact one xD

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
  • Timinthor
im not sure why for c and d they cam out like that
Timinthor
  • Timinthor
c is 3/5 and d is -5/3

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

Timinthor

okay, one sec im figuring it out
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
Lyn we're on a different question now O.o
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
@Timinthor Make it a fraction now: y1 - y2 over x1 - x2 <- but put the numbers for the variables ^.^
Timinthor
  • Timinthor
okay
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
Tell me when you finish that step and I can walk you through the rest too :^)
Timinthor
  • Timinthor
okay, i have it all written out, so it should look like|dw:1443128896791:dw| sorry for the bad handwritting lol
LynFran
  • LynFran
o ok ..im between question lol
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
You need to switch the numbers - this is an essential step. I had this same problem when I did these :P
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
so -1 - 4 over -2 - (-3)
Timinthor
  • 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
  • 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
  • Cresciez
Oh no wait lol one sec :P
Timinthor
  • Timinthor
okay, i just did it again and got -5 haha, would it be positive or negative?
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
-1 - 4 = -5 -2-(-3) = 5 so it's -5 over 5
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
If one is negative, it affects the entire answer, it yor answer should be -5/5 or -1
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
:3
Timinthor
  • Timinthor
okay, so negative then
Timinthor
  • Timinthor
Thank you guys so much!
Cresciez

No problem! :D

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

i got 9/2
Cresciez
  • Cresciez
ofc - give me one sec to calculate everything ^-^
Timinthor
  • Timinthor
okay
Cresciez
