Find the slope of the line passing through the following point: (–1, 3), (3, –1) - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Find the slope of the line passing through the following point: (–1, 3), (3, –1)

Solution

Let E =(–1, 3) = (x1, y1) and F = (3, –1) = (x2, y2) say.

Slope of line EF = (y_2 - y_1)/(x_2 - x_1)

= (- 1 - 3)/(3 - (-1))

= (-4)/4

= –1.
