Slope is calculated as change in y over change in x

__Y___{2}__ - Y___{1}__ __= ΔY __3 - (-19)__

X_{2} - X_{1} = ΔX 16 - 14

do i divide them to get the answer ?10/23/20

Natalie G.

subtract the two values on top, subtract the two values on bottom and then divide. A lot of times slope is a fraction because it is rise/run10/23/20

Do this 1 (16,3) because 2y-1y and 2x-1x=m(slope) then do -19-3=-22 2 (14,-19) 14-16=-2 x y simplafiy 11/1 or 11 is the anwser11/12/20
