# What is the slope of the line passing through  (8,-6); (9,8) ?

Apr 26, 2018

Slope $m = 14$

#### Explanation:

Given-

${x}_{1} = 8$
${y}_{1} = - 6$
${x}_{2} = 9$
${y}_{2} = 8$

Slope $m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}} = \frac{8 - \left(- 6\right)}{9 - 8} = \frac{8 + 6}{1} = 14$

Slope $m = 14$
