# Find the slope of the line containing the points a) a ,   0 and 0 ,   a . b) a ,   0 and 0 ,   b .

To determine

(a)

To find:

The slope of the line containing the points a, 0 and 0, a.

Explanation

x1,y1=a, 0

x2,y2=0, a

Formula for slope of the line containing two points.

Slope is denoted by m.

m=y2-y1x2-x1

Here x1x2

Substituting the x and y co-ordinates

To determine

(b)

To find:

The slope of the line containing the points a, 0 and 0, b.
