# What is the slope of (0,5) (1,5)?

Jul 19, 2018

The slope is $0$.

#### 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:
$\frac{5 - 5}{1 - 0} = \frac{0}{1} = 0$

Therefore, the slope is $0$. This also means that the line is horizontal.

Hope this helps!
