# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: (1, 1.5) , (3, 3.4)?

$\text{slope } = 0.95 = \frac{19}{20}$

#### Explanation:

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

•color(white)(x)m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)#

$\text{let "(x_1,y_1)=(1,1.5)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(3 , 3.4\right)$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{3.4 - 1.5}{3 - 1} = \frac{1.9}{2} = 0.95 = \frac{95}{100} = \frac{19}{20}$
