# How do you find the slope for (-1,2) and (-5,1)?

The slope of the line through the points

Apply the formula for slope:

One way to write a point is as follows:

Thus, we have two points to make:

To find the slope between two points ((-1, 2)) and ((-5, 1)), you use the formula:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{\text{change in } y}}{{\text{change in } x}} ]

Substitute the coordinates into the formula:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{1 - 2}}{{-5 - (-1)}} ]

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{-1}}{{-5 + 1}} ]

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{-1}}{{-6}} ]

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{1}{6} ]

Therefore, the slope between the two points is ( \frac{1}{6} ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
