Slope

Calculate the slope of a line that intersects points (-84,41) and (-76,-32).

Correct result:

k =  -9.13

Solution:

k=ΔyΔx=y1y0x1x0 k=324176+84=9.13k = \dfrac{ \Delta y}{ \Delta x } = \dfrac{ y_1 - y_0}{ x_1 - x_0 } \ \\ k = \dfrac{ -32 -41 }{ -76 +84} = -9.13



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
