Find the slope of the line that passes through the given pair of points.

(-1, 2) and (3, 4)

• MATH -

Recall the formula for slope of a line:
m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)
where
(x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are the points on the line
Substituting,
m = (4 - 2) / (3 - (-1))
m = 2 / (3+1)
m = 2/4
m = 1/2

Hope this helps~ :3
