Slope of a line passing through $\left(1 , 9\right)$ and $\left(0 , 6\right)$ is $3$

#### Explanation:

The slope of a line passing through $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ and $\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ is

$\frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$.

Hence, slope of a line passing through $\left(1 , 9\right)$ and $\left(0 , 6\right)$ is

$\frac{6 - 9}{0 - 1} = \frac{- 3}{- 1} = 3$
