# Line AB contains points A(3,-2) and B(1,8). the slope of line AB is?

The slope of a line is $\frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}$. We have the points (3, -2) and (1, 8). Let's substitute those into the formula.  $\frac{8 - (-2)}{1-3}$ subtracting a negative is the same as adding, so that makes our equation $\frac{8+2}{1-3}$ $\frac{10}{-2}$ slope = -5
