# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points:  (3,10) , (2, 5)?

Dec 26, 2015

The slope: color(blue)(m=5

#### Explanation:

(3,10) = color(blue)(x_1,y_1

(2,5) = color(blue)(x_2,y_2

The slope

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

$= \frac{5 - 10}{2 - 3}$

$= \frac{- 5}{- 1}$

The slope: color(blue)(m=5
