# How do you find the slope for A(1,1), B(6,3)?

Apr 19, 2016

The slope $= \frac{2}{5}$

#### Explanation:

A $\left(1 , 1\right) = \textcolor{b l u e}{{x}_{1} , {y}_{1}}$
B $\left(6 , 3\right) = \textcolor{b l u e}{{x}_{2} , {y}_{2}}$

The slope is calculated using formula:

Slope  = color(blue)((y_2-y_1)/ (x_2 -x_1)

(change in $y$ axis divided by change in $x$ axis)

$= \frac{3 - 1}{6 - 1}$

$= \frac{2}{5}$
