Chapter 2 - Section 2.2 - The Slope of a Line - 2.2 Exercises - Page 157: 14



Work Step by Step

Slope is defined as: $\displaystyle slope=\frac{rise}{run}$ To find the slope of $BD$ (if they were connected), we need to find the rise and run from $B$ to $D$. From the graph, we see that: $rise=-7$ units $run=-4$ units Thus: $slope=\frac{-7}{-4}=\frac{7}{4}$
