# What is the slope of the line passing through (1,2) and (4,6)?

Mar 14, 2018

$\text{slope } = \frac{4}{3}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{calculate the slope m using the "color(blue)"gradient formula}$

•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

$\text{let "(x_1,y_1)=(1,2)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(4 , 6\right)$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{6 - 2}{4 - 1} = \frac{4}{3}$
