To find the slope, simply divide [Y2(the 2nd y-value) minus Y1(the 1st y-value] by [X2(the 2nd x-value) minus X1(the 1st x-value)]. This finds the slope of a line with given coordinate points. i.e. (-2, 4) & (4, 8) (X1,Y1) (X2,Y2)---------> see how they correspond?! If you need anymore help, just contact me!
