# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points:  (-1,3), (5, 4)?

Jul 19, 2018

The slope is $\frac{1}{6}$.

#### Explanation:

To find the slope given two points, we use the formula $\text{rise"/"run}$, or $\frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$.

Plug in the given points into the formula:
$\frac{4 - 3}{5 - \left(- 1\right)} = \frac{1}{6}$

Therefore, the slope is $\frac{1}{6}$.

Hope this helps!
