1) [latex] \frac{y2-y1}{x2-x1} [/latex] [latex] \frac{-5-(-1)}{-2-3} [/latex] [latex] \frac{-4}{-5} [/latex] [latex] \frac{0.8}{1} [/latex] The slope of the line would be 0.8 over 1 Sorry, but I don't know the answer to #2

1) We know, Slope(m) = y2-y1 / x2-x1 m = -1-(-5) / 3 - (-2) m = -1+5 / 3+2 m = 4/5 In short, Your Answer would be 4/5 2) Equation: 2x - 3y = 6 3y = 2x - 6 Divide the equation by 3,  y = 2/3x - 2 Now, Compare it with y = mx + b Slope, m = 2/3 Line which is parallel to it must have the same slope. In short, Your Answer would be 2/3 Hope this helps!
