(6,5) (-1,-3) -3 - 5 ------- -1 - 6 = -2/5? Hi.... you are close with your slope, but you got confused when you added your negatives. Here's the formula for slope........ SO let's plug in your numbers.... Remember that subtracting is really adding the opposite, so, the above is actually...... which becomes: and because you have a negative divided by a negative, you get a positive. SO your FINAL answer for the slope is . Does that help? I hope so..
