Find the slope of the line that goes through the given points. I think I figured out the answer but I would appreciate any feedback thanks!

(3,-2),(-1,-6)

  • Math -

    Slope is y(two) - y(one)
    over x(two) - x(one
    so you equation will be
    (-6) - (-2)
    -----------
    (-1) - 3
    which equals -4 / -4 or 1

    Another way to do this is knowing that slope is rise/run, plot the points then count up for the rise and over for the run. You should get the same answer either way.
    Hopefully this helps!
