# What is the slope for (2, 3)and (-3, 0)?

Mar 23, 2018

The slope is $\frac{3}{5}$,

#### Explanation:

The slope of a linear line in the form of $y = m x + b$, is $m$, and is found by:

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

Note that $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) , \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ are the two coordinates.

Here, I'll pick $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) = \left(2 , 3\right)$, $\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(- 3 , 0\right)$.

And so, the slope will be,

$m = \frac{0 - 3}{- 3 - 2}$

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

$= \frac{3}{5}$
