#### Explanation:

To find the gradient (slope) of a line passing through 2 points use the

#color(blue) " gradient formula "#

# m = (y_2 - y_1)/(x_2 - x_1) # where

# (x_1,y_1) " and " (x_2,y_2)" are the coords of the 2 points "# let

# (x_1,y_1) = (4,1) " and " (x_2,y_2) = (-7,0)# substitute these values into the equation for m

#rArr m =(0 - 1 )/(-7 -4) = (-1)/(-11) = 1/11 #
