# How do you find the slope of the line passing through the points (1,6) and (10, -9)?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To find the slope, you need to use the following formula

Slope basically tells us a little about the line on our graph. How steep is it? Is it negative or positive? Is there a zero slope (horizontal line)?

You take whatever you are given and work with that to solve for the unknown. Here, we are given 2 points on a graph.

The first number corresponds to the point on the
