$m = \frac{3}{4}$

#### Explanation:

Given

P_1(x_1;y_1)=(2;1)

P_2(x_2,y_2)=(6;4)

the Slope is

m=(Deltay)/(Deltax)=(y_2−y_1)/(x_2−x_1)

$m = \frac{4 - 1}{6 - 2} = \frac{3}{4}$

The slope = $\frac{4 - 1}{6 - 2} = \frac{3}{4}$

#### Explanation:

In general for any Cartesian coordinates
$A \left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) \mathmr{and} B \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$
the slope is = (y_2 - y_1)/(x_2 - x_1
