Q:
# select the correct slope calculation for the line that contains the points in the table.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: option cStep-by-step explanation: By definition, you can calculate the slope of line by applying the formula shown below: [tex]m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}[/tex] Then: You can see that in the option C the equation of the slope is applied correctly: [tex]\frac{9-(-3)}{1-(-2)}[/tex] Where: [tex]y_2=9\\y_1=-3\\\\x_2=1\\x_1=-2[/tex] Then, you obtain the following value of the slope of the line: [tex]m=\frac{9-(-3)}{1-(-2)}=4[/tex]
