# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: (0, -6) ; (1,5) ?

Dec 22, 2015

The slope
$m = \frac{11}{1}$

#### Explanation:

The points are
(0,-6) = color(blue)(x_1,y_1

(1,5) = color(blue)(x_2,y_2

The slope can be calculated by

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

$m = \frac{5 - \left(- 6\right)}{1 - 0}$

$m = \frac{5 + 6}{1 - 0}$

$m = \frac{11}{1}$
