# Find the slope of the following lines which pass through the point: (2, – 1), (4, 3) - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Find the slope of the following lines which pass through the point: (2, – 1), (4, 3)

#### Solution

Let A = (x1, y1) = (2, – 1) and B = (x2, y2) = (4, 3).

Slope of line AB = (y_2 - y_1)/(x_2 - x_1)

= (3 - (-1))/(4 - 2)

= 4/2

= 2.
