To find the slope of a set of points in Matlab, you can use the `polyfit`

function to perform a linear regression on the data. The slope will be the first element in the resulting coefficient vector. Here is an example code snippet:

main.m351 chars17 lines

In this example, the `polyfit`

function is used to fit a linear model to the data `(x, y)`

. The resulting coefficients are stored in the `coefficients`

variable. The slope is extracted from the first element of the coefficients vector. Finally, the data and regression line are plotted using the `plot`

function.
