How do I determine the slope of the line passing through (-3,4) and (6,2).
The of slope of a line, G, is given by the formula change in y over change in x, i.e. G = change in y/ change x.
change in y = 2- 4
change in x = 6 - -3
G = (2-4)/ (6 - -3)
G = 2/ (6+3)
G = 2/9
Alternatively you can subtract the second pair of coordinates from the the first.
change in y = 4 - 2
change in x = -3 -6
G = (4- 2)/ (-3-6)
G = -2/-9
G = 2/9.
Hope this helps! You can ask any question if there is any issue.
I don't think that this is the correct answer because it says -2/9 on the answers section of the document.
Wait, I messed up the question.
Yeah I have seen the mistake
change in y = 2- 4 = -2
change in x = 6 - -3 = 9
change in x = -3 - 6
G = 2/-9
G = -2/9.
Thank you too for your patient and understanding.
