# Find what is the Slope of Line for Points (-3, 1) & (-17, 2)

## 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

(x

_{1}, y

_{1}) = (-3, 1)

(x

_{2}, y

_{2}) = (-17, 2)

step 2 Apply x

_{1}, y

_{1}, x

_{2}& y

_{2}in below slope formula.

m = y

_{2}- y

_{1}x

_{2}- x

_{1}

= 2 - (1)/-17 - (-3)

= 2 - 1/-17 + 3

= 1/-14

slope m = -0.0714
