    y - y_1 = m(x-x_0) solve for m. (x_0 and y_0) are your points

    \[\large y-y_{1}=m(x-x_{1})\] \[\large m=slope\] \[\large x_{1}~and~y_{1}=coordinates\]

    There are a few ways...you can use the slope formula \[\frac{ y2 - y1 }{ x2 - x1 }\] You can even count rise over run where the rise is the change in the y-values and the run is the change in the x-values. And i don't think point slope form would help if you're actually trying to find the slope.
