Find the slope from two points

HOW TO FIND THE SLOPE OF A LINE BETWEEN TWO POINTS

There is a formula for the slope between two points that looks like this:




What this means is to find the difference in the y coordinates (that means to subtract the y values), divided by the difference in the x coordinates (subtract the x values)!

Find the slope of the line that passes through (2, 1) and (10, 6).

Simplify your answer and write it as a proper fraction, improper fraction, or integer.

Plug (2, 1) and (10, 6) into the slope formula.

Plug in (2, 1) and (10, 6)

Subtract

The slope is


Find the slope of the line that passes through (4,0) and (8,5).
Simplify your answer and write it as a proper fraction or as a whole or mixed number.
