**Slope**

## Refresher on finding slope using 2 points. It is only 3 minutes long.

## 1. Answer the following. Show how.

What is the slope of the line that contains the points ( -3, -5) and ( -7, 8 ) ? Show your work.

## 2. Answer the following. Explain.

What is the slope of the line that contains the points ( -9, 12) and (-9, 15)?

## 3. Answer the following

Based on the answer to the previous question, what about the ordered pairs reveals this unique value for slope? What would the line look like?

## 4. Answer the following.

If the y-coordinates are the same for two ordered pairs, what is the value of the slope and what would the line look like?
