Help me please.Answer by nerdybill(6958)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!What must be the next point to have a slope of 3/4 if the first point is (4,5)? . Remember, slope is rise/run So, for a slope of 3/4 identical slope is also: (-3)/(-4) . Considering 3/4 as the slope: if you started at an arbitrary point (x,y) the next point would be (x+4, y+3). if you started at (4,5) the next point would be: (4+4,5+3) (8,8) . Considering (-3)/(-4) as the slope: if you started at an arbitrary point (x,y) the next point would be (x-4, y-3). So, given that (x,y) is (4,5) the next point would be: (4-4,5-3) (0,2)
