SLOPE

SLOPE The slope ( m ) of a line is a measure of how steep or slanted the line is. Just think of the pitch of a roof or steepness of a hill.

SLOPE The slope ( m ) of a line is a measure of how steep or slanted the line is. Just think of the pitch of a roof or steepness of a hill. You can find slope from : - two coordinate points - a given linear equation - a given graph

You can find slope from : - two coordinate points - a given linear equation - a given graph When a graph is given, find some intersection points and either count the slope or use the slope from 2 points formula.

You can find slope from : - two coordinate points - a given linear equation - a given graph When a graph is given, find some intersection points and either count the slope or use the slope from 2 points formula. If you count the slope remember up and right are positive moves, down and left are negative moves.
