In Example 5, if the first y-coordinate is changed to −2, what changes result in the example?


Data from Example 5

Find the slope of the line through (−1, 2) and (3, −1). In Fig. 5.6, we draw the line through these two points. By taking (x2 , y2) as (3, −1) and (x1 , y1) as (−1, 2), the slope is


The line falls 3 units for each 4 units in going from left to right.
