We can see that two of the points that the line goes through are (0, -1) and (1, 5) .

slope of line that goes through (0, -1) and (1, 5) = \(\frac{\text{rise}}{\text{run}}\,=\,\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\,=\,\frac{5--1}{1-0}\,=\,\frac{5+1}{1}\,=\,\frac61\,=\,6\)

Also, you can count how many units up and right a point on the line is from another to find the slope.

The point (1, 5) is 6 units up and 1 unit right from the point (0, -1) ,

so the slope is 6/1 , which is 6 .
