# How do you find the slope given (-1,2) and (6,2)?

May 8, 2016

The above pair of points have no slope.

#### Explanation:

 ( -1 , 2) = color(blue)(x_1 , y_1

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

The slope is calculated using formula:

Slope  = color(blue)(( y_2 - y _1)/(x_2 - x_1)

$= \frac{2 - 2}{6 - \left(- 1\right)}$

$= \frac{0}{6 + 1}$

$= 0$

The above pair of points have no slope.
