# Find what is the Slope of Line for Points (1, 7) & (10, 1)

## 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

(x

_{1}, y

_{1}) = (1, 7)

(x

_{2}, y

_{2}) = (10, 1)

step 2 Apply x

_{1}, y

_{1}, x

_{2}& y

_{2}in below slope formula.

m = y

_{2}- y

_{1}x

_{2}- x

_{1}

= 1 - (7)/10 - (1)

= 1 - 7/10 - 1

= -6/9

slope m = -0.6667
