1. ## Lines

Hi I'm new here. Can someone check my work to see what I should do to correct my mistake?

Find the slope of the line through (6, -4) and (2, 10).

I solved it this way:
$(10-4)/(2-6)=-6/4 = -3/2$

So.. my answer is:
$m=-3/2$

However my answer is wrong. What should I do?

Also, I have a few other math questions... should I post in a different thread for the other questions?

Thank you.

Your numerator should be 10-(-4) not 10-4

Close. What happened to the sign on "-4"?

10 - (-4) = 10+4 = 14

Please start a new thread for a new question.

Thank you very much.

I came up with the answer. I now have the result of -7/2.
