Find the slope of the line containing the given pair of points. If the line is undefined, state so. Please be sure to show all of your work. (-2, 3) and (-4, 6)
Best Answer
slope = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)
slope = (6-3)/(-4 - (-2))
slope = 3/-2
slope = -3/2

    (-2, 3) and (-4, 6)

    slope = (3-6)/(-2+4) = -3/2

    From the rightmost point (the first one), since the line decreases 3 for every 2 increase in x, the y-intercept is at the origin.

    the formula is Y2-Y1 divided by X1-X2

    which would be: 6-3 divided by -4 - -2

    3 divided by -2

    slope= -1.5 the slope is negative

    Slope = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

    = (3-6)/(-2--4)

    = -3/2

    Equation = y = -3/2x

    (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)=m

    y1=3
    y2=6

    x1=-2
    x2=-4

    (6-3)/[-4-(-2)]
    (6-3)/(-4+2)
    3/-2
    -1.5=m
    which is the slope
