 Question 624853: Find the slope and y-intercept of the line that passes through(-4,-8) &(-3,-2) Please show work I would really appreciate any help I can get with this problem, Ijust dont understand this slope stuff at all. Please help me!!!!Found 2 solutions by Emsley, Alan3354:Answer by Emsley(35)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The slope (really called gradient)= the difference of the y coordinates divided by the difference of the x coordinates So in this case it is (-2)-(-8) divided by (-3)-(-4) This gives 6/1=1 Answer by Alan3354(30982)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Find the slope and y-intercept of the line that passes through(-4,-8) &(-3,-2) Please show work ----------- Find the slope first. Slope, m = diffy/diffx m = 6/1 = 6 ------------- Use y = mx + b and the point to find b, the y-intercept -8 = 6*(-4) + b b = 16 or (0,16) -------
