Find the slope of the line segment that joints the points A(2, -8) and B(-1, 16)

Find the slope of the line segment that joints the points A(2, -8) and B(-1, 16)

Answer

We need to use the Point slope formula to find the slope so we label (2 , -8)(-1 , 16) subtract x1 y1 x2 y2.
y2-y1/x2-x1 16-(-8)/-1-2 = 24/-3 = -8 meaning the slope of this line is (-8)
