# Chapter 8 - Coordinate Geometry and Linear Systems - 8.3 - Slope of a Line - Problem Set 8.3: 2

$m=\dfrac{8}{3}$

#### Work Step by Step

Using $m=\dfrac{y_1-y_2}{x_1-x_2}$, the slope of the line determined by the given points, $( 9,10 ) \text{ and } ( 6,2 ),$ is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} m=\dfrac{10-2}{9-6} \\\\ m=\dfrac{8}{3} .\end{array}
