$\frac{5}{2}$

Explanation:

The slope, $m$, of the line is given by:

$m = \text{change in y" / "change in x}$

$\setminus \setminus \setminus \setminus = \frac{\Delta y}{\Delta x}$

$\setminus \setminus \setminus \setminus = \frac{6 - 1}{4 - 2}$

$\setminus \setminus \setminus \setminus = \frac{5}{2}$
