What is the slope of the line through (2,1) and (2,5) in the standard (x,y) coordinate plane?
A,) 3/2 B.) 1 C.) 1 D.) 3/2 E.) 4
rise change in y vertical change
slope of a line =  =  =  run change in x horizontal change Find the difference in the ycoordinates over the difference in the xcoordinates. 5  1  = slope {subtracted ycoordinates over subtraction of xcoordinates} 2  (2) 6  = slope {subtracted} 4 3  = slope {reduced} 2 D.) 3/2 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
