    2. (7, 3) and (5, 4)

    3. (−6, 8) and (−8, 5)

    5. Azizah got 1 for the slope of the line through points (1, 2) and (4, −1). Explain to her the mistake she made and how to find the slope correctly.

Either graph the two points to make a slope triangle or subtract the x-values from each other and the y-values from each other and substitute them into the slope formula.

Δx: 1 − 4 = −3
Δy: 2 − (−1) = 3

slope = −1

Use the same strategy to solve parts (b) through (e).
