What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: # (-3/4, -1/4) , (2/7, -5/7)#?
Finding the slope is the change in y divided by the change in x
The fractions with different denominators makes this a difficult problem.
To make the problem easier multiple all the fractions by the least common denominator to make the fractions disappear.
Multiplying by the least common denominator looks like this.
