Line L passes through the points (a, 2a) and (b, 2b), where a ≠ b. Determine the slope of line L.

*Line L passes through the points (a, 2a) and (b, 2b), where a ≠ b. Determine the slope of line L.*

The slope, m, of a line is equal to the change in y over the change in x between any two points, (x

_{1},y_{1}) and (x_{2},y_{2}), on the line.m = (y

_{2}-y_{1})/(x_{2}-x_{1})In your case (x

_{1},y_{1})=(a,2a) and (x_{2},y_{2})=(b,2b). Plug those values into the slope formula above to get the answer.
