What is the slope of a line through
(-5,2) and (6,7) in the standard(x,y) coordinate plane?

Sorry, I forgot the choices
F.9
G.5
H.-5
J. 5/11
K. -5/11
The main reason i can't figure this out is because I can't remember the slope formula. I need the slope formula but i also need to figure out the answer to this problem.

the formula for the slope is x2-x1 divided by y2-y1

algebra 2 is hardddd..

  • algebra -

    The slope formula is


    y2-y1
    M= ———
    x2-x1
