Question

# What is the slope of the line that goes through the points (-4,2) and (8,5)?

Answer

1/4

- Q: How do we find the slope of a line? A: We use the formula: slope = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1), where (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are two points on the line.
- Q: What are the coordinates of the two points given? A: The coordinates are (-4,2) and (8,5).
- Q: What is the slope of the line that passes through these two points? A: slope = (5 - 2) / (8 - (-4)) = 3 / 12 = 1 / 4.
