We can use the points (14, 20) and (-6, 15) to solve.

Slope formula: y2-y1/x2-x1

= 15-20/-6-14

= -5/-20

= 1/4

Hope This helped! Good Luck!

Slope formula: m = $\frac{(y2-y1)}{(x2-x1)}$ (Knowing that m represents the slope)

Substitute (1,0) for (x1,y1), and (-1,-3) for (x2,y2)

Slope of the line of (1,0) and (-1,-3) is:

m = $\frac{(-3-0)}{(-1-1)}$ = $\frac{-3}{-2}$ = $\frac{3}{2}$

(Simplify)

Slope of the line of (1,0) and (-1,-3) is $\frac{3}{2}$

omg this is so hsrd but its (2,6) dont @ me foo

Hello! 🙂

Step-by-step explanation:

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

$\frac{8-0}{3-1}=\frac{8}{2}=4$

Slope is 4, which is our final answer.

Hope this helps!

Thanks!

Have a nice day! 🙂

M= slope = y2 - y1 / x2 - x1
(x1 , y1) = (1 , 0)
(x2 , y2) = (3 , 8)

m= 8 - 0/ 3 - 1
m= 4

6. NatalieAllen11 says:

4 is the slope because the formula for slope is (y2-y1) / (x2-x1) or (8-0) / (3-1) which simplifies to 8/2 = 4

7. shanasia76 says:

Slope = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)

Slope = (8 - 0)/(3 - 1)

Slope = 8/2

Slope = 4

4

$What is the slope of the line of (1,0) and (-1,-3)$

The answer is -5, use rise over run.

The slope is $4$

Step-by-step explanation:

The following formula is used to find the slope of a line:

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

You know that that line passes through these points:

$(1,0)\ and\ (3,8)$

Then you can identify that:

$y_2=0\\y_1=8\\\\x_2=1\\x_1=3$

Knowing these values you can substiute them into the formula  $m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$  and evaluate, in order to find the slope of this line.

This is:

$m=\frac{0-8}{1-3}\\\\m=\frac{-8}{-2}\\\\m=4$
