What is the slope of the line passing through # (2,9) ;(-11,7) #? Algebra Graphs of Linear Equations and Functions Slope 1 Answer BRIAN M. Apr 14, 2016 The slope is #m = 2/13# Explanation: The formula for the slope of a line based upon two coordinate points is #m = (y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)# For the coordinate points #(2,9) and (-11,7)# #x_1 = 2# #x_2 = -11# #y_1 = 9# #y_2 = 7# #m = (7-9)/(-11-2)# #m = (-2)/-13# The slope is #m = 2/13# Answer link Related questions What is Slope?
