What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: # (-3, -2) ; (-8,8)#?
The slope of any line can be found out if two of its co-ordinates are known. We have the following formula for the slope of aline where the two co-ordinates are given. (m is the slope of the line).
Here let the first set of co-ordinates be
and the second set is
Substituting in the formula, you will have
