(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find the slope of this line it contains these points:

(-16, -1) , (-17, -7)

2. Relevant equations

y = mx + b

3. The attempt at a solution

i got y = 3/8x - .625

is that correct?

my work i use -7 +1 / -17 + 1

==-6/16

==6/16 = 3/8

then i used -7 = 3/8 * -17 + b

=6.375
