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

Mar 8, 2018

The slope of the line passing through the two points is $- \frac{6}{7}$.

#### Explanation:

Use the slope formula:

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

Plug the values in:

$m = \frac{5 + 1}{- 4 - 3} = - \frac{6}{7}$
