Find the slope of the line containing the points (-3, 4) and (5, 4). State whether the line is vertical, horizontal, or neither.

Slope of the line joining the points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)

m = (4 - 4)/(5 + 3) = 0

The line is horizontal.

Find the slope of the line containing the points (-2, -5) and (-2, ...

#### Solution Summary

The expert finds the slope of the line containing the points. Slope-intercept and point-slope forms are provided.
