2 Holt CA Course 1 7-7 Finding Slope of a Line Warm Up Evaluate each equation for x = –1, 0, and 1. 1. y = 3x 2. y = x – 7 3. y = 2x + 5 4. y = 6x – 2 –3, 0, 3 –8, –7, –6 3, 5, 7 –8, –2, 4

3 Holt CA Course 1 7-7 Finding Slope of a Line AF3.4 Plot the values of quantities whose ratios are always the same (e.g. cost to the number of an item, feet to inches, circumference to diameter of a circle). Fit a line to the plot and understand that the slope of the line equals the quantities. Also covered: AF3.3. California Standards

4 Holt CA Course 1 7-7 Finding Slope of a Line Recall that lines have constant slope. For a line on the coordinate plane, slope is the following ratio: vertical change horizontal change change in y change in x =

5 Holt CA Course 1 7-7 Finding Slope of a Line If you know any two points on a line, you can find the slope of the line without graphing. The slope of a line through the points (x 1, y 1 ) and (x 2, y 2 ) is as follows: y2 – y1y2 – y1x2 – x1x2 – x1y2 – y1y2 – y1x2 – x1x2 – x1 When finding slope using the ratio above, it does not matter which point you choose for (x 1, y 1 ) and which point you choose for (x 2, y 2 ). slope =
