An architect needs to determine the slope between two points on a ski lift. The two points have been identified as (10, 35) and (150, 55), where x is the horizontal distance and y is the vertical distance from the bottom of the lift. Assuming the lift runs in a straight line, what is the slope of the line between the two points?
(Write your answer in simplest form, using / for a fraction bar if needed.)
Wouldn't u divide?

You can use the formula for calculating slope : \(\cfrac{y_1  y_2}{x_1  x_2}\) where \(x_1, y_1\) and \(x_2 , y_2\) are the points.

no. You would just simplify it to the lowest terms.

Here we have two points as : \(10,35 \) and \(150,55\) . So \(x_1 = 10\) and \(y_1 = 35\) and \(x_2 = 150\) and \(y_2 = 55\)
