# Line AB contains points A(-2, 3) and B(4, 5). Line AB has a slope that is

Zero, Undefined, Positive, Negative

**Solution:**

It is given that,

Line AB contains points A(-2, 3) and B(4, 5)

Then, the slope of a line, is given by:

m = (y_{2} - y_{1})/(x_{2} - x_{1})

Then we have,

(x_{1}, y_{1}) = (-2, 3)

(x_{2}, y_{2}) = (4, 5)

Now we have to substitute the values, we get,

m = (5 - 3)/(4 - (-2))

By further calculation

m = 2/(4 + 2)

So we get

m = 2/6

m = 1/3

So, the slope is a positive number.

Therefore, line AB has a slope 1/3 that is positive.

## Line AB contains points A(-2, 3) and B(4, 5). Line AB has a slope that is

Zero, Undefined, Positive, Negative

**Summary:**

Line AB contains points A(-2, 3) and B(4,equation 5). Line AB has a slope 1/3 that is positive.
