What is the slope of the line that passes through the given points (3 2) and (5 12)?
Answer: 5 is the slope of the line that passes through the given points (3, 2) and (5, 12).
We will use the formula of slope to find the answer.
Let x1 = 3, y1 = 2 and x2 = 5, y2 = 12
The formula for slope(m) = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1) , where (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are the two points.
Put the values of x1, y1 and x2, y2 in the formula of slope,
Slope(m) = (12 - 2)/(5 - 3)
m = 10/2
m = 5
The slope of the line passing through points (3, 2) and (5, 12) is 5.
We can also verify the answer using the slope calculator.
A positive slope always indicates an increasing graph.
