# Chapter 3 - Introduction to Graphing - 3.5 Slope - 3.5 Exercise Set: 23

#### Answer

slope = $\dfrac{4}{3}$

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: slope = $\dfrac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$ where $(x_1, y_1)$ and $(x_2, y_2)$ are the coordinates of the two points on the line. Use the points on the line $(0, 1)$ and $(3, 5)$ to obtain: slope = $\dfrac{5-1}{3-0}=\dfrac{4}{3}$
