    (x2, y2)(-17, 2)
    Slope -0.0714

    Work with Steps to find Slope of Line passing through (-3, 1) & (-17, 2)

    Question:
    The line on X Y plane is passing through the points (-3, 1) and (-17, 2), find what is the slope of that line?
    Workout :
    step1 Address the formula, input parameters and values
    (x1, y1) = (-3, 1)
    (x2, y2) = (-17, 2)

    step 2 Apply x1, y1, x2 & y2 in below slope formula.
    m = y2 - y1x2 - x1
    = 2 - (1)/-17 - (-3)
    = 2 - 1/-17 + 3
    = 1/-14
    slope m = -0.0714
