# How do you find the slope of (10, 0) and (0, 3)?

In general, for any two points $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) \mathmr{and} \left({X}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ the slope is defined as:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXXX}}$$\left(\text{the change in "y)/("the change in } x\right)$
$\frac{\Delta y}{\Delta x} = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$
For the given points $\left(10 , 0\right) \mathmr{and} \left(0 , 3\right)$
slope $= \frac{3 - 0}{0 - 10} = - \frac{3}{10}$
