# Find the Slope of the Line that Passes through the Pair of Points: (2, 6), (7, 0)

We will be using the slope formula for a line that passes through two points to answer this.

## Answer: The Slope of the Line that Passes Through (2, 6), (7, 0) is -6/5.

Let's solve this step by step.

**Explanation:**

Given that, (x_{1}, y_{1}) = (2, 6) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) = (7, 0)

The Slope of the Line that Passes Through (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) is given by:

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

Substitue (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) with their given values.

m = (0 - 6) / (7 - 2)

m = (-6) / (5)

m = -6/5
