The line that passes through (-1, -3) and (2, 1) is y=4/3x-5/3.
Assuming that y=ax+b, put the two points into the equation,
-3=-a+b, 1=2a+b.
1+3=2a+a
4=3a
a=4/3,
b=1-2a
=1-2x4/3
=1-8/3
=3/3-8/3
=-5/3.
So y=4/3x-5/3.

The slope of the line that passes through the points (2, 1) and (-1, -1) is 2/3.
Assuming that y=ax+b, put two points into it
1=2a+b.-1=-a+b
2=3a
a=2/3.
b=-1+a
b=-1+2/3
b=-1/3.
y=2/3x-1/3.
2/3 is the slope.

The slope of the line whose equation is 2x + 5y + 1 = 0 is
Weegy: 2 (5) = 5 (7) + 7 User: The slope of the line whose equation is 2x + 5y + 1 = 0 is Weegy: To find the slope of this line, put the equation into SLOPE INTERCEPT FORM: y=mx+b. This is the easiest method for solving this type of problem, because the 'm' in slope-intercept form equals your slope. [ To put it in this form, isolate y. . ] (More)

The slope of the line whose equation is 2x + 5y + 1 = 0 is -2/5.
2x+5y+1=0
5y=-1-2x
y=-1/5-2/5x
y=-2/5x-1/5.
