find the slope of a straight line that passes through the given pair of points (5,6) and (-3,1)

  • algebra - ,

    recall that the slope, m, is given by the equation,
    m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)
    where
    (x1, y1) = coordinates of first point
    (x2, y2) = coordinates of second point
    substituting,
    m = (1 - 6)/(-3 - 5)
    m = (-5)/(-8)
    m = 5/8

    hope this helps~ :)
