# Math Help - Quadratic Formula & Slope of a line Question

1. ## Quadratic Formula & Slope of a line Question

Hello, I have two questions that I can't figure out. I wanted to see if someone else can help me.

1.) Using the quadratic formula solve the following equation:
3x^2 -6x=5

2.) Find the slope of the line passing through the following points (-2,3) and (-5, -1)

2. a) The quadratic formula is

$x_{1,2}=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{\Delta}}{2a}$, where $\Delta =b^2-4ac$

Here, $a=3, \ b=-6, \ c=-5$

b) The slope is $m=\frac{y_1-y_2}{x_1-x_2}$
