Give the equation of a line that passes through 2 and -3. The line is going diagonal from the top right down. 2 and -3 would be the order it hit the points.

Is the -3 supposed to be positive because it's the rise?

It has a NEGATIVE slope if it is higher on the left and slopes down to the right.....

It's one line. the rise is 3 and the run is 2. There are two dots on the line - -3 and 2.

I don't think you are interpreting the info correctly...... two points on a line EACH would have TWO coordinates. WIthout this info...or a picture of the line.....you cannot say anything about it.......It could have positive or negative slope of any magnitude..... Sorry .

If it is going DIAGONAL (i.e. it is sloped) from the top right to the left it has a POSITIVE slope.

"The line is going diagonal from the top right down. 2 and -3 would be the order it hit the points." if you are reading from RIGHT to LEFT....this line has a positive slope.......but you need more information to determine the MAGNITUDE of the slope......

there are INFINITE lines that go through 2 and -3 with positive slope,,,,,,,,
