Slope = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1) = (-2 - 3)/(6 - (-4)) = -5/10 = -1/2.

Formula of slope of a line that passes through points $$(x_1,y_1)$$ and $$(x_2,y_2)$$ = $$\frac {y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}$$
Therefore slope = $$\frac {(-2) - 3}{6 - (-4)}$$ = $$\frac {-5}{10}$$ = $$-\frac {1}{2}$$

Hence the answer is B. Re: What is the slope of the line that passes through the points (−4, 3) a   [#permalink] 23 Mar 2019, 23:49
