What is the slope of the line through (-7, -2) and (-6, 7)?

m = 9

Step-by-step explanation:

The slope of a line can be found through rise-over-run: dividing the change in y-coordinate over the change in x-coordinate -- (y₁ - y₂) ÷ (x₁ - x₂)

That looks like this: (-2 - 7) ÷ (-7 + 6) --> subtracting negative = adding positive

Add: -9 ÷ -1

Divide: 9

line or a linear equation graph

step-by-step explanation:

[tex]\displaystyle =9[/tex]

Step-by-step explanation:

The slope formula is

[tex]\displaystyle \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}[/tex]

[tex]\displaystyle y_2=7\\\displaystyle y_1=(-2)\\\displaystyle x_2=(-6)\\\displaystyle x_1=(-7)[/tex]

[tex]\frac{7-(-2)}{(-6)-(-7)}=\frac{9}{1}=9[/tex]

Therefore, the slope is 9, and the correct answer is 9.

Hope this helps!

slope=9

Step-by-step explanation:

m=∆y/∆x

=(7+2)/(-6+7)

=9/1

=9

-2-7=-9

-7-6=-13=9/13

Finding the slope using two points:

The formula for slope is

[tex]\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}[/tex]

In this case...

[tex]y_{2} =7\\y_{1} =-2\\x_{2} =-6\\x_{1} =-7[/tex]

^^^Plug these numbers into the formula for slope...

[tex]\frac{7-(-2)}{-6 - (-7)}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{9}{1}[/tex]

OR

9

^^^This is your slope

Hope this helped!

9

Step-by-step explanation:

Slope is rise over run or change y/change x.

7 - -2 = 9

-6 - -7 = 1

Slope = 9/1 or 9

I AM ALWAYS HAPPY TO HELP 🙂

Step-by-step explanation:

shown the slope and equation

[tex]What is the slope of the line through (-7, -2) and (-6, 7)?[/tex]

Well the formula is Y2-Y1/X2-X1

So you do 7-(-2)/(-6)-(-7). Giving you 9/1 meaning 9 is most definitely your answer.I hope this helped.

[tex]\bf (\stackrel{x_1}{-7}~,~\stackrel{y_1}{-2})\qquad (\stackrel{x_2}{-6}~,~\stackrel{y_2}{7}) \\\\\\ slope = m\implies \cfrac{\stackrel{rise}{ y_2- y_1}}{\stackrel{run}{ x_2- x_1}}\implies \cfrac{7-(-2)}{-6-(-7)}\implies \cfrac{7+2}{-6+7}\implies \cfrac{9}{1}\implies 9[/tex]

b

step-by-step explanation:

a difference is the result of subtraction. while each of these expressions has subtraction in it, a difference will be the result when subtraction is the last operation applied in the order of operations for the expression. this means subtraction must be outside of the parenthesis. only b has this.
