Given any two points ( x 1 , y 1 ) and ( x 2 , y 2 )
the slope of the line going through those points (and of any line parallel to that line) is given by
m = Δ y Δ x = y 2 - y 1 x 2 - x 1
For the given points
( x 1 , y 1 ) = ( 4 , 0 )
and
( x 2 , y 2 ) = ( 3.8 , 2 )
this becomes
m = 2 - 0 3.8 - 4
= 2 - 0.2
= - 10
