    Find the slope of a line

    Find the slope of the line joining (2,4) and (2+h, f(2+h)) in terms of the nonzero number h
    Ok I know that to find the slope of a line the formula is m=\frac {y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}, but when I try to solve for it I get \frac {f(2+h)-4}{h}. Is that right?

    Hello there,

    You are not given a specific value for  h so that seem correct to me.

    Hope this helps!
