Find the slope from two points

**HOW TO FIND THE SLOPE OF A LINE BETWEEN TWO POINTS**
There is a formula for the slope between two points that looks like this:

What this means is to find the difference in the y coordinates (that means to subtract the y values), divided by the difference in the x coordinates (subtract the x values)!

Find the slope of the line that passes through (2, 1) and (10, 6).

*Simplify your answer and write it as a proper fraction, improper fraction, or integer.*

Plug (2, 1) and (10, 6) into the slope formula.

Plug in (2, 1) and (10, 6)

Subtract
