# How do you find the slope for (3, 7) and (0, 6)?

$m = \frac{1}{3}$

#### Explanation:

To find the slope of the line connecting two points use the slope formula.

$m = \left(\left({y}_{\text{2"-y_"1")/(x_"2"-x_"1}}\right)\right)$

Simply input the x and y values into the formula and simplify, in our case:

$m = \left(\frac{6 - 7}{0 - 3}\right) = \left(\frac{- 1}{-} 3\right) = \left(\frac{1}{3}\right)$
