Algebra 2

Given points P(-2,7) and Q(4,y) in a coordinate plane, for what value of y is the slope of the line through P and Q equal to -3/2?

Please help, thanks.

Re: Algebra 2

This  is surely a home work problem.You must be knowing the slope of line joining two points in coordinate form. Equate it to the given value and find y.

Hi sweetandsourpineapple/superspicygeek,

Welcome. Have you considered registering an account on here?

For your question -- do you know how to compute the slope of a line passing through two points?
