A line has slope negative five thirds. Through which two points could this line pass? (1 point)

A.) (12, 13), (17, 10)
B.) (16, 15), (13, 10)
C.) (0, 7), (3, 10)
D.) (11, 13), (8, 18)

• algebra -

so if the slope is -5/3
the difference in the y's has to be 5
ruling out A) and C right away

B) slope = (15-10)/(16-13) = +5/3
D) slope = (18-13)/(8-11) = -5/3

so D
