# Construct a straight line passing through points A (0; 2) and B (2; 3). Determine the sign of the slope of the constructed line

September 28, 2021 | education

| In the general equation of the straight line y = kx + b, insert the values of the variables that are the coordinates of the given points A (0; 2) and B (2; 3), solve the system of equations and find the slope.

2 = k * 0 + b;

3 = k * 2 + b.

b = 2;

2k = 3 – 2 = 1;

k = 1/2.

y = 1 / 2x + 2

Answer: the sign of the slope of this straight line is plus.
