What is the slope of the line that passes through (6,1) and (2,5)?

1. User Answers aaronkang7
slope is simply rise/run.
or
(vertical shift)/(horizontal shift)
therefore, the x value went from 6 to 2 which means it vertically shifted by 8.
and the y value went from 1 to 5, which means it horizontally shifted by 4.
the slope is 8/4.
or 2.

(6,1)(2,5)
slope = (5  1) / (2  (6) = 4/(2 + 6) = 4 / 8 reduces to 1/2 <==
