# Thread: Slope of the Secant Line

1. ## Slope of the Secant Line

Determine the slope of the secant line for the curve defined by the equation f(x)= 4x^2 + (8) for the points determined by x0= -5 and x1= -4.
The slope of the secant line is m= _________

2. ## Re: Slope of the Secant Line

$m = \frac{f(x_1) - f(x_0)}{x_1 - x_0}$
