Q:
# line p has an x-intercept of 5 and a y-intercept of 3. Find the slope of line p

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:-3/5Step-by-step explanation:you can use the formula [tex]\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}[/tex] to find the slope of a line when given two points. we are given both the x and y intercepts, and we can use those in the formula.the x intercept is (5,0) and the y intercept is (0,3)i will treat (5,0) as my x1 and y1, and (0,3) as my x2 and y2[tex]\frac{3-0}{0-5}[/tex] = -3/5the slope is -3/5
