 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: $slope=\frac{rise}{run}=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$ 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. $slope=\frac{change\;in\;y}{change\;in\;x}$ $slope=\frac{6-1}{10-2}$ Plug in (2, 1) and (10, 6) $slope=\frac{5}{8}$ Subtract The slope is $\frac{5}{8}$ Find the slope of the line that passes through (8,2) and (9,4).Simplify your answer and write it as a proper fraction or as a whole or mixed number.
