I got history homework, try on your own :o Look at the: y rate of change / x rate of change

I'll let you know if you get the answer right :)

*points to the formula provided on previous question*

@iambatman Can you give me the formula again. OS is acting up and I'm scared if I try to go to that question it's going to freeze my computer again. *puppy dog eyes*

\[\huge m = \frac{ y_{2}-y _{1} }{ x _{2}-x _{1} }\]

Plug in any of the (x,y) coordinates and you'll get your answer, the formula means rise/run in a sense.

OK, I get that. How do I find the coordinates with that kind of graph? @iambatman @xGuardians

Who needs a graph, when you got the table!

Use your (x,y) values from the table :d

Right. :) Which ones though? There's 4 sets! @iambatman

Where did you get -10 from? These numbers o_O

Oh crap! Sorry I was looking at another problem. Let me fix that. :) LOL. :):):)\[M=\frac{ 2-3.5 }{ -4--1 }\]

You have it backwards :3 y2 - y1

Oh! I see. :) Well...At least I got some of it right. :) What do I do now? Do I just solve it?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yup

What would that be simplified to?

That's what I though. I'm bad at doing it in my head. :) So c? @iambatman
