# Using the given points, determine the slope of the line: (-3, 0) and (2, 7)

A slope indicates the change in gradient of the graph which can be either positive or negative.

## Answer: The slope of the line passing through the points (-3, 0) and (2, 7) is 7/5.

Go through the steps to find the exact value of the slope.

**Explanation:**

Given points: (-3, 0) and (2, 7)

The formula for slope = (\(y_{2}\) - \(y_{1}\)) / (\(x_{2}\) - \(x_{1}\)) , where (\(x_{1}\), \(y_{1}\)) and (\(x_{2}\), \(y_{2}\)) are the two points.

Using the above formula, slope for the given points = (7 - 0) / (2 - (-3))

Slope = 7/5

You can use the slope calculator to verify the answer.

A positive slope indicates an upward slope or an increasing graph.
