# How do you find the slope of a line parallel to the line passing through points (-4,0) and (1,-5)?

See full explanation below

A line parallel to the line contain the two points in the problem will have the same slopes.

Using the two points given we can find the slope.

Substituting the two points from the problem into the formula gives:

To find the slope of a line parallel to the line passing through points (-4,0) and (1,-5), you first find the slope of the given line using the formula: ( m = \frac{{y_2 - y_1}}{{x_2 - x_1}} ). Substituting the coordinates into the formula: ( m = \frac{{-5 - 0}}{{1 - (-4)}} = \frac{{-5}}{{5}} = -1 ). Since parallel lines have the same slope, the slope of any line parallel to this one is also ( -1 ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
