  1. 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

  2. [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]


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

    Hope this helps!

  3. Finding the slope using two points:

    The formula for slope is


    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]




    ^^^This is your slope

    Hope this helped!

  4. 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


  5. Step-by-step explanation:

    shown the slope and equation

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

  6. 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.

  7. [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]

  8. 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.
