# How do you find the slope given (9,8) and (3,0)?

May 17, 2016

The slope $= \frac{4}{3}$

#### Explanation:

The coordinates are:
( 9 , 8 ) = color(blue)(x_1,y_1

( 3 , 0 ) = color(blue)(x_2,y_2

The slope is calculated using formula:

Slope =color(blue)((y_2- y_1) / ( x_2- x_1)

$= \frac{0 - 8}{3 - 9}$

$= \frac{- 8}{- 6}$

$= \frac{8}{6}$

The slope $= \frac{4}{3}$
