### Transcript

by subtracting two points on a graph so in this case check out the points here

on the graph.

4, 7 and -2, 6. The points live here and here

and we can draw a line through them in a slope is here. Line goes a little bit

upward...so double check ourselves we know it's gonna have to have a positive slope

so we can immediately reject C, D and E So in this case

we just subtract the points and put them in the form Y

over X. So take the 7 of the 4, 7 point

and subtract 6 from it. We get 1 in the numerator

now get the x-coordinate. We have 4

minus -2 which is just adding 2

to get 6. So that's slope of 1 over 6. Here it is.

Answer A as in "Abracadabra."
