# What is the Slope of the Line which passes through (4, 5) and (0, 1)?

The slope of the line passing through two points (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) is given by: m _{2 }− x_{1})/(y_{2 }− y_{1}).

## Answer: The Slope of the Line which passing through (4, 5) and (0, 1) is: m = 1.

Let us solve it step by step.

**Explanation:**

Given that,

(x_{1}, y_{1}) = (4, 5)

(x_{2}, y_{2}) = (0, 1)

The slope of the line passing through two points (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) is given by:

Slope (m) _{2 }− y_{1}) / (x_{2 }− x_{1}).

Slope (m) = (0 - 4) / (1 - 5)

Slope (m) = (-4) / (-4)

Slope (m) = 1
