 Question 343181: i need help finding the slope of the line passing through the pointss (2,1),(6,9)?Answer by haileytucki(390)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(2,1),(6,9) Slope is equal to the change in y over the change in x, or 'rise over run'. m=(change in y)/(change in x) The change in x is equal to the difference in x-coordinates (also called run), and the change in y is equal to the difference in y-coordinates (also called rise). m=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1) Substitute in the values of x and y into the equation to find the slope. m=(9-(1))/(6-(2)) Multiply -1 by the 2 inside the parentheses. m=(9-(1))/(6-2) Subtract 2 from 6 to get 4. m=(9-(1))/(4) Multiply -1 by the 1 inside the parentheses. m=(9-1)/(4) Subtract 1 from 9 to get 8. m=(8)/(4) Reduce the expression (8)/(4) by removing a factor of 4 from the numerator and denominator. m=2
