# How do you find the slope given (3, 1), (9, 4)?

Dec 28, 2015

The formula to find the slope of a line is $\frac{y 2 - y 1}{x 2 - x 1}$

#### Explanation:

Assuming m represents slope.

m = $\frac{y 2 - y 1}{x 2 - x 1}$

m = $\frac{4 - 1}{9 - 3}$

m = $\frac{3}{6}$

m= $\frac{1}{2}$

Hopefully you understand now.
