 Question 324173: What is the slope of a line? Given two points on a line, how is the slope calculated? Given the equation of a line, how is the slope calculated? Demonstrate by determining the slope of "3x + 5y = 19."Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Slope=(Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1) is the slope formula given 2 points. Y=mX+b m=slope. Y=4x-5 4 is this lines slope. 3x+5y=19 5y=-3x+19 y=-3x/5+19/5 Slope=-3/5.
