# How do you find the slope of the line passing through the points (1,3) and (5,4)?

$\frac{1}{4}$

#### Explanation:

The formula for slope is as follows:

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

Using this formula, you get the following:

$\frac{4 - 3}{5 - 1} = \frac{1}{4}$

I hope this has helped you better understand slope. I didn’t understand slope either until I practiced it more, so feel free to ask anytime.
