Answer

$m=1$

Work Step by Step

To find the slope, we use the formula $m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$. We plug in the $x$ and $y$ values given to us in the coordinate pairs: $m=\frac{3-1}{7-5}$ We simplify above and below the fraction bar with subtraction: $m=\frac{2}{2}$ Then, we divide the fraction: $m=1$
