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**

Identify the two points: (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) Use the formula m=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1) *It does not matter which set of coordinates are considered to be (x1,y1) and which are considered to be (x2,y2)

5
**Example What is the slope between the points (-2,5) and (6,10)?**

If (x1,y1)=(-2,5) and (x2,y2)=(6,10) If (x1,y1)=(6,10) and (x2,y2)=(-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?**

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