Ex 10.1, 10 Find the angle between the x-axis and the line joining the points (3, –1) and (4, –2). First we find slope of line joining the points (3, –1) and (4, –2). We know that slope of line passing through (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is m = (𝑦_2 − 𝑦_1)/(𝑥_2 − 𝑥_1 ) Here x1 = 3, y1 = –1 & x2 = 4, y2 = –2 Slope of line joining (3, –1) and (4, –2) is m = ( −2 − (−1))/(4 − 3) = ( − 2 + 1)/(4 − 3) = ( − 1)/1 = –1 Ex 10.1, 10 Find the angle between the x-axis and the line joining the points (3, –1) and (4, –2).
