Chapter 3 - Section 3.4 - The Slope of a Line - Exercise Set: 72

Answer

-3

Work Step by Step

We are given two points on the graph, the ordered pairs (0,3) and (1,0). We can input these points into the slope formula to determine the slope of the line. $m=\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}$ $m=\frac{0-3}{1-0}=\frac{0+(-3)}{1}=-3$
