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

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~ :)
