    Answer:

    50

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1. To solve for the slope, it is vital to use the rise over run formula.

    The formula is as follows: y2 – y1 / x2 – x1

    Applying the two coordinates in the formula, this would be:

    0 – (-50) / 43 – 42

    2. Solving the fraction, it is best to simplify the expression on both the numerator and denominator.

    0 – (-50) / 43 – 42

    0 + 50 / 1

    50 / 1

    3. The slope of the line is 50.

    Answer:

    m = 50

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Focusing on these two points and moving from the first to the second, we see that x increases by 1 and y increases by 50.  Thus, the slope of the line passing through these points is m = rise / run, or

    m = 50/1, or m = 50
