# Find the Slope of a Line Passing Through the Following Point: (3, −5), and (1, 2) - Mathematics

Find the slope of a line passing through the following point:

(3, −5), and (1, 2)

#### Solution

(3, −5), and (1, 2)

Let m be the slope of the given line.

$\therefore m = \frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}$

$\Rightarrow m = \frac{2 + 5}{1 - 3} = - \frac{7}{2}$

Hence, the slope of the line passing through the points (3, −5), and (1, 2) is $- \frac{7}{2}$.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
