how do i find the slope of line AB if A`s coordinates are(-4,3) and B`s coordinates are (2,-1)

  • math -

    A(-4,3) and B(2,-1)

    If you have points A(x1,y1) and B(x2,y2)
    Slope m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)

  • math -

    so i just have to do (-1-3)/(3-(-4)

  • math -

    m = (-1-3)/(2-(-4)

    You had 3, should be 2
