Given two co-ordinates, find the slope of a straight line.
Input : x1 = 4, y1 = 2, x2 = 2, y2 = 5 Output : Slope is -1.5
Approach: To calculate the slope of a line you need only two points from that line, (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). The equation used to calculate the slope from two points is:
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
Slope is: -1.5
