I'm trying to make a slope on graph paper, I had to make a figure with six sides and this is my vertexes. A=(4,-8) B=(9,-10) C=(15,-7) D=(13,-4)E=(7,-6) F=(4,-4)
My segment is A and B my slope is
-8-(-10)/4-9=-8+10/4-9=2/-5 What I get as my answer is -0.4 is that an appropriate answer?

  2. your slope of -2/5 or -.4 for line AB is correct

    The slope of a line can be any real number, both positive and negative

    If the slope is positive the line leans to the right
    If the slope is negative the line leans to the left
    if the slope is zero, the line is horizontal.
