# Answer the following question: Find the value of k if the slope of the line passing through the points P(3, 4), Q(5, k) is 9 - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Find the value of k if the slope of the line passing through the points P(3, 4), Q(5, k) is 9

#### Solution

P(3, 4), Q(5, k) and slope of PQ = 9

∴ ("k" - 4)/(5 - 3) = 9

∴ k – 4 = 18

∴ k = 22.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
