# What is the slope of the line passing through the following points: (5,13) , (8,19) ?

Apr 17, 2018

The slope between the two points is $2$.

#### Explanation:

Using the slope formula:

$m = \frac{{y}_{2} - {y}_{1}}{{x}_{2} - {x}_{1}}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{m} = \frac{19 - 13}{8 - 5}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{m} = \frac{6}{3}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{m} = 2$

That's the slope. Hope this helped!
