color(brown)(Slope = m = (15 - 5) / (8 - 3) = 2

#### Explanation:

$\text{To find the slope of the line passing thru } \left(3 , 5\right) , \left(8 , 15\right)$

color(crimson)(Slope = " (rise) /( run) = "("change in y's ) / (change in x's )"

:.color(blue)(Slope = m = (y_2 - y_1) / (x_2 - x_1)

color(brown)(Slope = m = (15 - 5) / (8 - 3) = 2
