Work Step by Step

To find the slope, we use the formula m=(y2−y1)/(x2−x1). We plug in the x and y values from the points in the graph shown: m=(−1−0)/(1−(−1)) We simplify above and below the fraction bar with subtraction: m=−1/2 Then, we simplify the fraction by writing the negative sign out front: m=−1/2
