Find the slope of the line through the 2 points (0, 19), (-4, -13)

The formula for finding slope is y2 - y1 divided by x2 - x1. To find the numerator -13 - 19 = -32 To find the denominator -4 - 0 = -4 -32 divided by -4 = 8 The slope or m = 8 *It is difficult to format math responses here.

### Subject: Algebra

Solve the system of linear equations -x-3y=8 2x+6y=-16

By multiplying the first equation by two, we can now use the elimination method to solve the system. Once the terms are added together we see that all the terms will add to zero. This leaves us with 0=0. This means that the two equations are actually the same line and therefore have infinitely many solutions.
