## anonymous one year ago What is the slope of the line that passes through the points (–2, 1) and (1, 6)? A.-5 B.3/5 C.5/3 D.-7

1. Haseeb96

For slope you will use this formula $m = \frac{ y _{2 -}y_1 }{ x_2 - x_1 }$

2. marihelenh

$\frac{ y _{2}-y _{1} }{ x _{2}-x _{1} }=m$

3. Haseeb96

since (x1,y1)= (-2,1) (x2,y2)= (1,6) nowjust put these points in above formula and get your answer

4. Haseeb96

the equation will be look like this

5. Haseeb96

|dw:1437090179321:dw|
