Am I right? Equation below.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Which of the following is the slope between the two points (-1, -1)and (8, 0)? one ninth -one ninth What I got is below.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

y=9x

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Which would have to be one ninth. I would like to know if i'm right or wrong...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

sorry, you're wrong and I was too =P

OpenStudy (anonymous):

m = (0-(-1))/(8-(-1))= (1/9)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so y = (1/9)*x + b

OpenStudy (anonymous):

But, the only answers are. 9 -9 one ninth -one ninth

OpenStudy (anonymous):

(1/9) is one ninth

OpenStudy (radar):

The correct answer is there: 1/9 It is the coefficient of x in the y=(1/9)x + b

OpenStudy (anonymous):

So, then I was right?

OpenStudy (radar):

Yes (as usual)
