# How do you find the slope of a line (1,2) (3,5)?

Mar 21, 2018

The slope is $\frac{3}{2}$.

#### Explanation:

The formula for the slope of a line when two points $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ and $\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ are given is $\frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$.

Applying this formula, we get:

$\frac{5 - 2}{3 - 1}$

$= \frac{3}{2}$
