## anonymous one year ago What is the slope of the line that passes through (3, 5) and (6, 10)?

1. anonymous

um 3/5?

2. anonymous

Can you explain to me how to get the answer?

3. anonymous

or .6?

4. anonymous

6 Is not an answer choice

5. anonymous

well, the slop is just the how far up and over it goes, so from point 3,5 to 6,10 it goes up three and over 5

6. anonymous

But it says "What is the slope of the line that passes through"

7. anonymous

Yes, so you can keep going up 3 and over 5 and the line will stay along with that slope.

8. anonymous

I don' see a slope

You can find the slope with the data from the two points: $m=\frac{ y_2-y_1 }{ x_2-x_1 }$ use: $p_1=(3,5)$ $p_2=(6,10)$ try that!
