Chapter 1.10, Problem 1E

To determine

**To evaluate:** The formula and the value of slope of line passing through two points.

Expert Solution

The formula of slope of line is defines as two points by dividing the difference in the *y*-coordinates of these points by the difference in the *x*-coordinates and the slope of line passing through two given points is 2.

**Given:**

Two points of line are

**Formula used:**

Formula of slope of line passing through two points is,

**Calculation:**

**Section1:**

The formula of slope of line is defines as two points by dividing the difference in the *y*-coordinates of these points by the difference in the *x*-coordinates.

In the above formula,
*y*-coordinates of two points and
*x*-coordinates of two points.

Thus, the formula of slope of line is defines as two points by dividing the difference in the *y*-coordinates of these points by the difference in the *x*-coordinates.

**Section2:**

Substitute 5 for

Thus, the slope of line passing through two given points is 2.
