# How do you find the slope given (7,12), (4,-13)?

Apr 25, 2018

The slope is $m = \frac{25}{3}$.

#### Explanation:

To find $m$ (the slope), the formula is $m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$.

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

$m = \frac{\left(- 13\right) - 12}{4 - 7}$

$m = \frac{- 25}{- 3}$

$m = \frac{25}{3}$

And that is your slope. I hope this helps.
