Q:
# What is the slope of the line segment? −3 Negative 1 over 3 1 over 3 3

Accepted Solution

A:

Ah, one of my FAVORITES!

1. Take 2 points, ill take (0, 0) and (4, 12)

2. Set them as "1" and "2" so (0, 0) be 1 and (4, 12) be 2.

3. [tex] \frac{y_{2}-y _{1} }{x_{2}-x_{1}} [/tex] and insert the equations.

4. You get [tex] \frac{12-0}{4-0} [/tex] which simplifies to [tex] \frac{12}{4} [/tex].

5. [tex]12 /4[/tex]=3

6. Slope = 3

Hope this helps ^^
