# Find what is the Slope of Line for Points (8, 10) & (-7, 14)

## Work with Steps to find Slope of Line passing through (8, 10) & (-7, 14)

__Question:__

Find what is the slope of a line passing through two points (8, 10) (-7, 14) on XY plane?

__Workout :__

step1 Address the formula, input parameters and values

(x

_{1}, y

_{1}) = (8, 10)

(x

_{2}, y

_{2}) = (-7, 14)

step 2 Apply x

_{1}, y

_{1}, x

_{2}& y

_{2}in below slope formula.

m = y

_{2}- y

_{1}x

_{2}- x

_{1}

= 14 - (10)/-7 - (8)

= 14 - 10/-7 - 8

= 4/-15

slope m = -0.2667
