slope of line passing through the points  (x1, y1)  and  (x2, y2)   =   \(\dfrac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\)

slope of line passing through the points  (6, 7)  and  (4, 2)   =   \(\dfrac{2-7}{4-6}\)   =   ?

As Hec solves above. remember slope = rise / run    'rise' would be the y direction ' run'  would be the x direction

then use the formula in Hecticar's answer   and    note    it does not matter which point you call  x1  y1    or  xy2
