## anonymous one year ago What is the slope of the line that passes through the points (2,7) and (-1,3) ?

1. hartnn

The slope of the line through points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is given by : $$\huge m=\frac{y_1-y_2}{x_1-x_2}$$ now,just put the values and find m.

4. hartnn

yep, go on

5. hartnn

3-7 = -4 -1-2 = -3 so the slope will be ?

6. anonymous

it would be |dw:1443983044758:dw|

7. anonymous

no positive

8. hartnn

-4/-3 is just 4/3 :)

9. anonymous

because if there are 2 negatives, it would be postive
