# How do you find the slope of the line passing through the points (3,5) and (8,15)?

Jul 19, 2018

The slope is $2$.

#### Explanation:

To find the slope given two points, we use the formula $\text{rise"/"run}$, or $\frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$.

Plug in the given points into the formula:
$\frac{15 - 5}{8 - 3} = \frac{10}{5} = 2$

Therefore, the slope is $2$.

Hope this helps!

$2$

#### Explanation:

After using slope formula for 2 points,

$\frac{15 - 5}{8 - 3} = \frac{10}{5} = 2$
