Slope of the line\(\frac{y2-y1}{x2-x1}\)= \(\frac{(15-10)}{(20-5)}\) = 5/15 = 1/3

Ans: A

Slope = y2-y1/x2-x1
=15-10/20-5
= 5/15
= 1/3 option A

A. 1/3

B. 1/2

C. 3/2

D. 2

E. 3


Soln:
Let A(5,10) and B(20,15) are the two points
from which the line passes.


So the equation of the line is given by

(15-10)/(20-5) = (Y-10)/(X-5)
3Y= X+25
therefore ; Y= X/3 +25/3 (in the form of Y=mX+C)


the slope of the line is 1/3
ans (A)

slope m = rise / run

so (15 - 10) / (20 - 5)

= 1/3

We can use the slope formula m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1):

(15 - 10)/(20 - 5) = 5/15 = 1/3

Answer: A
