To determine

To calculate: To find the slope of the line passing through two points

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 3E

Slope of the line is 4.5

Explanation of Solution

Given information: Points P(3,3) and Q(1,6)

Formula Used:

Slope of the line passing through points (x,1y1) and (x,2y2) is given as

  m=y2y1x2x1

Calculation:

Points are given as follows:

  P(3,3) and Q(1,6)

Slope of the line passing through above points is calculated as

  m=631(3)m=91+3m=92m=4.5

Conclusion:

Hence, the slope of line is 4.5
