Question

# Bhargavi is looking at a graph that shows a line drawn between two points with a slope of -5. One of the point is smudged and she cannot read it. The point as far as she can tell are (3,5)(X,10). What must the value of X be? Explain.

Hint:

### Use the formula of slope.

## The correct answer is: 3

### It is given that the points (3 , 5) and (x , 10) lie on the graph.

Also, slope of the graph = - 5

We know that slope of a line =

5 =

5( x – 3) = 5

x + 3 = 0

3 = x

So, value of x = 3

So, value of x = 3
