## anonymous 4 years ago What is the slope of the two points (1, 5) and (6, 4)?

1. Mimi_x3

Slope is the gradient so you use the gradient formula $m =\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$

2. Mimi_x3

$(1,5) (6,4) => (x_1,y_1)(x_2,y_2)$

3. Mimi_x3

Are you able to do it now?

4. anonymous

the slope is -1/5

5. anonymous

right

6. anonymous

use the slope formula $m \frac{Y_2-Y_1}{X_2-X_1}$ Plugin your points $m \frac{4-5}{6-1}$ $m -\frac{1}{5}$

i got it right :D

yes you are right JackJones.
