Determine the slope following lines. Sketch the graph of line.
The line which contains the two points (-2, -3) and (3, 1) .
Solution
we'll need to do is employ the slope formula to determine the slope & then plot the two points & connect them along a line to get the graph.
The line which contains the two points ( -2, -3) and (3,1) .
Do not worry which point gets the subscript of 1 & which subscript of 2. Either way will get the similar answer. Usually, we'll just take them into the order listed. Thus, here is the slope for this part.
m =1 - (-3)/ 3 - (-2) = 1+3 /3+2 = 4/5
Be careful with minus signs in these computations. This is easy to lose track of them. Also, while the slope is a fraction, as it is here, leave it like a fraction. Do not change to a decimal unless you absolutely need to.
Following is a sketch of the line.
Notice that this line enhance as we move from left to right.
