Chapter 3 - Section 3.4 - The Slope of a Line - Exercise Set: 74

Answer

1

Work Step by Step

We are given two points on the graph, the ordered pairs (-3,-1) and (2,4). We can input these points into the slope formula to determine the slope of the line. $m=\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}$ $m=\frac{4-(-1)}{2-(-3)}=\frac{4+1}{2+3}=\frac{5}{5}=1$
