# What is the slope of the line passing through  (9,1) ; (0,0)?

Mar 27, 2018

$\frac{1}{9}$

#### Explanation:

$m = \frac{{y}_{1} - {y}_{2}}{{x}_{1} - {x}_{2}}$
$m = \frac{1 - 0}{9 - 0} = \frac{1}{9}$

$\text{slope } = \frac{1}{9}$

#### Explanation:

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

•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

$\text{let "(x_1,y_1)=(9,1)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(0 , 0\right)$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{0 - 1}{0 - 9} = \frac{- 1}{- 9} = \frac{1}{9}$
