User: Find the slope of a line that passes through the following points. (4,11)and (-2,0)

Weegy: C.-3/2

User: The slope of a line which passes through two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1). Thus, slope of the line which passes through (4, 11) and (-2, 1) is = (1 - 11) / (-2 - 4) = -10 / -6 = 5/3 Since the line we need is parallel to this line, it will have the same slope 5/3 as well.

The slope of a line that passes through the points (4,11)and (-2,0) is m = (0 - 11)/(-2 - 4) = -11/-6 = 11/6

write an equation of the line with the given slope and the given y-intercept. leave answer in the slope -intercept form. Slope -2/3,=intercept (0,5)
Weegy: the equation for point-slope form is y-y1=m(x-x1) so the answer would be : 4. hope this helped (smile) (More)
