 Solved by pluggable solver: Finding the slope Slope of the line through the points (2, 6) and (-3, -3) Answer: Slope is

You can put this solution on YOUR website!

A = (2,6)
D = (-3, -3)
This is just a matter of getting the subscripts right (the 1's and 2's)
The given points are going to end up being (),()
and (),().
You decide and either way it works.
A = (),()
D = (),()
That will work fine, and also
A = (),()
D = (),()
That works fine, too
I'll do it both ways to prove it
A = (2,6)
(2,6) = (),()
D = (-3, -3)
(-3, -3) = (),()

-----------------------------
Now the other way
A = (2,6)
(2,6) = (),()
d = (-3, -3)
(-3, -3) = (),()

So, you can't go wrong as long as you keep
straight which point is which. Hope this helps
