Homework Help: algebra

Posted by peggy on Friday, January 26, 2007 at 8:06pm.

Find the slope of the line through the given points. (2,4) (6,-3).

m=y2-y1 over x2-x1.

(-3)-(4) over(6)-(2)
-3-4 over 6-2
-7 over 4.

I plotted the two coordinates (2,-4) (6)(-3), and the slope is -7 over 4, right?
How do you plot the slope?

I think you intended to write that you plotted the coordinates (2,4)(6,-3), If you draw a straight line through the two points the slope is the slope of the line. The slope is plotted when you draw the line between the two points. Yes, the slope is -4/7.

I goofed big time with a typoe. The slope is -7/4. Sorry about that.
