Find the slope of the line passing through the pair of points.

( -5, 5) and ( 9, 7)

• MATH -

For given points P1(-5,5) and P2(9,7),
the line passing through the two given points is given by:
L:(y-y1)/(y2-y1)=(x-x1)/(x2-x1)
where
(x1,y1)=(-5,5), and
(x2,y2)=(9,7)
So
L:(y-5)/(7-5)=(x-(-5))/(9-(-5))
Simplify to get the final equation.

• MATH -

if you did y3-y8-y5 you have to divide it so that what do you you have to do
