1 Slope By Lia Servidio and Kelly Lively

2 What is Slope? Slope is a measure of how steep a line is The greater the slope value, the steeper the line

3 Slope Formula Slope is generally represented as the letter m Equal to the change in the y-coordinates divided by the change in the x- coordinates

4 How to Find Slope From Two Points 1. Identify the two points: (x 1,y 1 ) and (x 2,y 2 ) 2. Use the formula m=(y 2 -y 1 )/(x 2 -x 1 ) *It does not matter which set of coordinates are considered to be (x 1,y 1 ) and which are considered to be (x 2,y 2 )

5 Example What is the slope between the points (-2,5) and (6,10)? If (x 1,y 1 )=(-2,5) and (x 2,y 2 )=(6,10) If (x 1,y 1 )=(6,10) and (x 2,y 2 )=(-2,5)

6 How to Find Slope From an Equation *Slope is equal to m in the equation y=mx+b Set the equation equal to y (if not already) Slope is equal to the constant in front of x

7 Examples What is the slope of the line y=4x+7? 1. Since the equation is already set equal to y, look for the constant next to the x. 2. y=4x+7, m=4 What is the slope of the line 6x+3y=12? 1. Set the equation equal to y: 3y=-6x+12 y=-2x+4 2. Look for the constant next to the x, m=-2

8 How to Find Slope Using a Graph

9 Horizontal and Vertical Lines The slope of a horizontal line is 0 because there is no change in y The slope of a vertical line is undefined because it is impossible to divide by 0 and there is no change in x
