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)
The slope is
