For this case we have the following points:

M (1,3)

N (5.0)

The slope of the line is given by:

m = (y2-y1) / (x2-x1)

Substituting values we have:

m = (0-3) / (5-1)

Rewriting we have:

m = -3 / 4

M (1,3)

N (5.0)

The slope of the line is given by:

m = (y2-y1) / (x2-x1)

Substituting values we have:

m = (0-3) / (5-1)

Rewriting we have:

m = -3 / 4

**Answer:**

**The slope of the line is:**

**m = -3 / 4**
