This is my homework assignment, and this isn't the real problem. I made this one up. so you could walk me through the steps so I can do the real problem!!
Thank you(:
What is the slope of the line that passes through the pair of points (3/2 , 2) and (3, 7/3).

slope = (difference in the y values)/(difference in the x values), make sure you subract in the "same direction"
slope = (2  7/3)/(3/2  (3)
= (6/3  7/3)/(3/2 + 6/2)
=(13/3) / (9/2)
= (13/3)(2/9) = 26/27
by subtracting in the same direction ....
we could have done:
slope = (7/3  (2)) / (3  3/2)
and obtain exactly the same anwer
