To determine

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

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 4E

Slope of the line is 47

Explanation of Solution

Given information: Points P(1,4) and Q(6,0)

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(1,4) and Q(6,0)

Slope of the line passing through above points is calculated as

  m=0(4)6(1)m=0+46+1m=47

Conclusion:

Hence, the slope of line is 47
