like hell

The slope of a line is$\frac{ y _{2} -y _{1}}{ x _{2}-x _{1} }$ So plug in your y values in the top and your x values in the bottom

$\huge \frac{6-5}{4-(-2)}$ will ifnd it

remember $slope = \frac{ y2 - y1 }{ x2 - x1 }$

i got 5-6 over 4-(-2) so what do i do next?

7. candyme

Subtract them 5-6=1 4-(-2)=4+2=6 So the slope is....

6?

9. candyme

Don't forget the top

10. anonymous

oh.. 1 over 6?

11. candyme

there you go

12. anonymous

yay! thank you!!

13. candyme

Oh actually I mistyped that myself. Should be -1/6
