# What is the slope of the line that passes through the given points (2, 12) and (6, 11)?

**Solution:**

Given two points (2, 12), (6, 11)

The slope of a line is a number that measures its "steepness", usually denoted by the letter m. It is the change in y for a unit change in x.

We know that the slope of line using two points is given by

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

Here, x_{1 }= 2, y_{1 }= 12, x_{2 }= 6, y_{2 }= 11

Slope m = 11 - 12 / 6 - 2

m = -1/4

Therefore, the slope is -1/4.

## What is the slope of the line that passes through the given points (2, 12) and (6, 11)?

**Summary:**

The slope of the line that passes through the given points (2, 12) and (6, 11) is -1/4.
