# What is the slope of the line passing through  (-3,-3); (2,5)?

Apr 8, 2016

$\frac{8}{5}$

#### Explanation:

Slope of a line passing through points x1,y1 and x2,y2 is $\frac{y 2 - y 1}{x 2 - x 1}$. In this, the slope would therefore be $\frac{5 - \left(- 3\right)}{2 - \left(- 3\right)} = \frac{8}{5}$
