# What is the slope of the line passing through  (3,0); (10,-1)?

Jan 11, 2016

The slope
$m = \frac{- 1}{7}$

#### Explanation:

The points given are
(3,0) = color(blue)(x_1,y_1

(10,-1) = color(blue)(x_2,y_2

The slope :

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

$m = \frac{- 1 - 0}{10 - 3}$

$m = \frac{- 1}{7}$
