What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: # (5, -6) , (2, 5)#?
Put these values in the slope equation
Algebra is gr8. In this case, what you would do is use the slope formula;
Where m = slope, and each 'y' or 'x' term is inserted from your coordinate points!
(5, -6)(2, 5)
(Respectively, if you haven't noticed :)
Plug them in!
(Remember, two negatives cancel out, so the top will be 5 + 6)
Your slope is
Or approximately 3.67 (rounded)
