# How do you find the slope given H(2,5) and k (3,9)?

Jun 26, 2016

Slope is $4$.

#### Explanation:

Slope of line joining two points $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ and $\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ is given by

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

Hence, given points $H \left(2 , 5\right)$ and $K \left(3 , 9\right)$

slope is $\frac{9 - 5}{3 - 2} = \frac{4}{1} = 4$.
