Homework Help: Postive slopes

  1. Feb 15, 2005 #1
    Do all positive slopes taken from points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) satisfy the following logic, x1 < x2 and y1 < y2?

    Either of the following would have a POSITIVE slope:
    Condition #1 -----> {x1 < x2} AND {y1 < y2}
    Condition #2 -----> {x1 > x2} AND {y1 > y2}
