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

Jan 19, 2016

$\frac{7}{3}$ is the slope of the line.

#### Explanation:

You just simply need to use the formula
$m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$
where, m=slope of the line
the ${y}_{2}$ and ${y}_{1}$ is just 3 and -4
and the ${x}_{2}$ and ${x}_{1}$ is just the 4 and 1
If you substitute the answers, you will get $\frac{7}{3}$ as the slope.
