# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points:  (3,1) , (6, 8) ?

The slope
color(blue)(m = (7)/(3)

#### Explanation:

(3,1) = color(blue)(x_1,y_1

(6,8) = color(blue)(x_2,y_2

The slope can be found using formula:

m=color(blue)((y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1

$m = \frac{8 - 1}{6 - 3}$

color(blue)(m = (7)/(3)
