# What is the slope of the line between  (24,32)  and  (16,-5) ?

Jan 13, 2016

The slope
$m = \frac{37}{8}$

#### Explanation:

The points are
(24,32) = color(blue)(x_1,y_1

(16 , -5) = color(blue)(x_2,y_2

The slope is found using formula :

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

$m = \frac{- 5 - 32}{16 - 24}$

$m = \frac{- 37}{- 8}$
