Given :  The table represents a linear function.

To Find  : slope of the function

Solution:

x            y

-2          8

-1           2

0          -4

1          -10

2          -16

Slope of the line  = ( 2 - 8) / ( - 1 -(-2))

= - 6 / 1

= - 6

-6 is   slope of the line

y -(-4) = -6(x - 0)

=> y + 4 = -6x

=> 6x + y + 4 = 0  is Equation of line

slope of the function = - 6

What is the slope of the line joining the points(2,0) and(-2,0) - ...

Find the slope of the line passing through the points (2,3) and ...

THIRD OPTION.

Step-by-step explanation:

The slope can found by using the following formula:

$m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$

In this case, in order to find the slope of the given function, we need to choose two points from the table provided in the exercise. Let's choose these points:

$(-2,-2)\\\\(2,10)$

We can identify that:

$y_2=-2\\y_1=10\\\\x_2=-2\\x_1=2$

Substituting these values into the formula, we get that the slope of the function is:

$m=\frac{-2-10}{-2-2}\\\\m=3$

This matches with the third option.

the slope of the graph is 4 ( because -4 minus 0 is negative 4 but u have to flip it to a positive number)
