# How do you find the slope of (a line passing through the points) (3, -2) and (-2, 5)?

##### 1 Answer

You can use the gradient (slope) formula:

#### Explanation:

The slope of a line is often called '

A line with a slope of 2 rises by 2 units for every unit it moves onward in

A formula for this is as follows:

We usually use the second point given to us in the question as **it doesn't matter** : try the experiment for yourself of doing it the other way around, and see that you get the same answer for the slope.

In this case:

The slope of this line is
