  • Slope Formula: m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}

Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1: Define

Point (3, 6)

Point (4, 2)

Step 2: Find slope m

Simply plug in the 2 coordinates into the slope formula to find slope m.

  1. Substitute [SF]:                    m=\frac{2-6}{4-3}
  2. Subtract:                              m=\frac{-4}{1}
  3. Divide:                                 m=-4
