# What is the slope of the line that passes through the pair of points? (1, 7) and (10, 1)

**Solution:**

The slope of a line is nothing but the change in y coordinate with respect to the change in x coordinate of that line.

The slope of the line can be found by using the formula:

m = (y_{2} - y_{1})/(x_{2} - x_{1})

Substituting the points (1,7) and (10,1) we get,

m = (1 - 7)/(10 - 1)

By further calculation

m = -6/9

So we get

m = -2/3

Therefore, the slope of the line is -2/3.

## What is the slope of the line that passes through the pair of points? (1, 7) and (10, 1)

**Summary:**

The slope of the line that passes through the pair of points (1, 7) and (10, 1) is -2/3.
