# What is the slope of the line between  (6, 13)  and  (14, -2 ) ?

Jan 11, 2016

The slope
$m = \frac{- 15}{8}$

#### Explanation:

The points given are
$\left(6 , 13\right) = \textcolor{b l u e}{{x}_{1} , {y}_{1}}$

$\left(14 , - 2\right) = \textcolor{b l u e}{{x}_{2} , {y}_{2}}$

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

$m = \frac{- 2 - 13}{14 - 6}$

$m = \frac{- 15}{8}$
