Find Slope Using Coordinates
Find the slope of the line that passes through A(3, 3) and B(2, 0). Definition of slope (x1, y1) = (3, 3), (x2, y2) = (2,0) Simplify. Answer: The slope is 3. Example 4

Find Slope Using Coordinates
Check When going from left to right, the graph of the line slants upward. This is correct for positive slope. Example 4
