I'm surprised at you! I gave you guidance towards finding the slope formula, whereupon you simply started a new post in the hope that someone else would do your work for you. This is not acceptable. Please go back to our previous discussion, look up the "slope of a straight line" formula, and then find the slope of the line thru those two points.

By deleting our previous conversation, you wasted my time as well as yours.

http://cs.selu.edu/~rbyrd/math/slope/ I'm asking you to type in the general slope formula. Only after doing that, you apply this formula to the 2 points in question, to find the slope of the line passing through both points. Slope formula, please?

how can i put those number on that equation?

Show me the slope equation first, please. It's all there in black and white if you'd refer to the links I've given you.

dude i dont even know what is a slope

This example not only defines the slope, but gives you an example of how to find it.

damm giv me a site where i just plug the numbers

Life's not like that. If you're not willing to make the slightest effort to look up and learn what you need to know, such as the slope of a straight line, then I'm not willing to continue investing time in you until that attitude changes. http://cs.selu.edu/~rbyrd/math/slope/

Have you gone to the site whose URL I've given you, read the definition of "slope," and copied it down here on Open Study? If not, why are you so resistant to doing so?

The slope formula looks like:\[m=slope=\frac{ y _{2}-y _{1} }{ x _{2}-x _{1} }\]

The two given points are .... what? type them out, enclosing the coordinates of each one in parentheses.

Information on those two points is to be found here: http://assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/569903fae4b0d1086d77f564-ekkerking-1452868612924-screenshot20160115at9.30.02am.png

Tell my what you yourself have done so far. Where is the slope formula? Type in the two points given in this problem.
