Question

For the equation y -2 = 3(x +1), the line contains the point (−1,2), Slope is ________.

  1. -1
  2. 3
  3. -3
  4. 5

Hint:

Given the equation in point slope form
y - y1 = m( x-x1)
the m is slope of the line .

The correct answer is: 3


    The equation y -2 = 3(x +1).
    Step 1 : Compare to y - y1 = m (x - x1)
    m is the slope
    Step 2 : On Comparing
    m= 3.
    So , slope is m which is 3 , slope is 3 .

    Number on rhs outside bracket is your slope .
