    \[\huge~\rm~\frac{ y_2-y_1 }{ x_2-x_1 }=slope\]

    \[\huge \frac{2-12}{3-5}\] for sure

    @pooja195 as long as you keep the order the same, it doesn't matter

    god does not tell you which one is \((x_1,y_1)\) and \((x_2,y_2)\) you get to pick that for yourself

    (x1,y1) = (3,2) (x2,y2) = (5,12) ------------------------------------------------------- \[\Large m = \frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\] \[\Large m = \frac{12 - 2}{5-3}\] \[\Large m = \frac{10}{2}\] \[\Large m = 5\] ------------------------------------------------------- \[\Large m = \frac{y_{1}-y_{2}}{x_{1}-x_{2}}\] \[\Large m = \frac{2-12}{3-5}\] \[\Large m = \frac{-10}{-2}\] \[\Large m = 5\] ------------------------------------------------------- Either way, you get the same slope.
