Determining the Slope of a Line

Determining the Slope of a Line 1.2 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Determining the Slope of a Line
a
We can calculate the slope by substituting the given points into the slope formula. In the above equation, and represent two points on the line. For the line we want to study the points and are known. Let's find the slope of the line.
The slope of the line that passes through the given points is
b
In order to determine the slope of the line that passes through the given points, we will use the slope formula. In the formula, represents the slope, and and represent points that lie on the line. The points we will use here are and
The slope of the line that passes through the given points is
c
Next, we will find the slope of the line passing through the points and We will do that using the slope formula. Let's substitute the values into the formula and calculate the slope.
The slope of the line that passes through the given points is It means that the line is horizontal.
