Problem 6 :

If the line that passes through (4, 3) and (-5, r) has a slope of -1, what is the value of r?

Problem 7 :

Problem 8 :

The graph of the linear function f passes through the points (a, 1) and (1, b) in the xy-plane. If the slope of the graph of f is 1, which of the following is true?

(A)  a - b = 1

(B)  a + b = 1

(C)  a - b = 2

(D)  a + b = 2

Problem 9 :

Find the slope of the line in xy-plane shown below. Problem 10 :

Find the slope of the line in xy-plane shown below.  (3, -2) and (-1, 4)

Formula to find the slope of a line joining two points :

Substitute (x1, y1) = (3, -2) and (x2, y2) = (-1, 4).

(5, -2) and (4, -1)

Formula :

Substitute (x1, y1) = (5, -2) and (x2, y2) = (4, -1).

m = -1

(-2, - 1) and (4, 0)

Formula :

Substitute (x1, y1) = (-2, -1) and (x2, y2) = (4, 0).

(1, 2) and (-4, 5)

Formula :

Substitute (x1, y1) = (1, 2) and (x2, y2) = (-4, 5).

slope = 5

Substitute (x1, y1) = (1, -2) and (x2, y2) = (3, k).

Multiply both sides by 2.

k + 2 = 10

Subtract 2 from both sides.

k = 8

slope = -1

Substitute (x1, y1) = (4, 3) and (x2, y2) = (-5, r).

Multiply both sides by -9.

r - 3 = 9

r = 12

Substitute (x1, y1) = (a, 7) and (x2, y2) = (1, a).

By cross-multiplication,

9(a - 7) = -5(1 - a)

Use the Distributive Property.

9a - 63 = -5 + 5a

Subtract 5a from both sides.

4a - 63 = -5

4a = 58

Divide both sides by 4.

a = ⁵⁸⁄₄

a = ²⁹⁄₂

slope = 1

Substitute (x1, y1) = (a, 1) and (x2, y2) = (1, b).

Multiply both sides by (1 - a).

b - 1 = 1 - a

a + b - 1 = 1

a + b = 2

Therefore, the corect answer is option (D). Measure the rise and run. For the above line,

rise = -4

run = 3

Then,

slope = ʳⁱˢᵉ⁄ᵣᵤ

= -⁴⁄₃ Measure the rise and run. For the above line,

rise = 6

run = 9

Then,

slope = ʳⁱˢᵉ⁄ᵣᵤ

⁶⁄₉
