The slope, m, is the change in y over the change in x between any two points, (x_{1},y_{1}) and
_{(}x_{2},y_{2),} on the line:

m = (y_{2}-y_{1})/(x_{2}-x_{1})

For A = (0,5) and B=(-3,2), we have:

m = (2 - 5)/(-3 - 0) = -3/-3

Try it yourself for the other sets of points.

Hello, Amy!

To determine slope, we only need to do the following:

Subtract your second y coordinate from your first y coordinate, then divide by the second x coordinate minus the first x coordinate.

For example:

Use the formula: (y2-y1)/(x2-x1). So, for points A and B, we set it up as (2-5)/(-3-0). This gives us -3/-3, or 1. The slope of the line with points A and B is 1.

Hope this helps!
