 Question 54192This question is from textbook Algebra for College Students : What are the steps to determine the slope of the line passing through the points ? I am trying to make sure my steps are correct. Thank youThis question is from textbook Algebra for College Students Answer by venugopalramana(3286)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!What are the steps to determine the slope of the line passing through the points P = (X1,Y1)=(2,-1) and Q=(X2,Y2)=(-6,-3)? I am trying to make sure my steps are correct. Thank you THE FORMULA FOR SLOPE IS (Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1)={-3-(-1)}/(-6-2)=-2/-8 = 1/4
