    (x2, y2)(10, 1)
    Slope -0.6667

    Work with Steps to find Slope of Line passing through (1, 7) & (10, 1)

    Question:
    What is the slope of a line that passes though point 1 (1, 7) and point 2 (10, 1) on XY plane?
    Workout :
    step1 Address the formula, input parameters and values
    (x1, y1) = (1, 7)
    (x2, y2) = (10, 1)

    step 2 Apply x1, y1, x2 & y2 in below slope formula.
    m = y2 - y1x2 - x1
    = 1 - (7)/10 - (1)
    = 1 - 7/10 - 1
    = -6/9
    slope m = -0.6667
