slope of line passing through the points (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) = \(\dfrac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\)

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 x_{1} y_{1 or }x_{2 }y_{2 }
