The slope of a line segment AB is 2. The coordinates of the endpoints of the line segment are A(-2,11) and (X,7). Determine the value for X.

  • MATH!! -

    The equation for slope is m = (y1 - y2) / (x1 - x2).

    You have the slope m = 2, the point (x1, y1) = (-2, 11), and the point (x2, y2) = (X, 7).

    2 = (11 - 7) / (-2 - X)
    X = ?
