8
EXAMPLE 2 : Find the slope of the line thru the given points.

9
EXAMPLE 2 : Find the slope of the line thru the given points. 2 options : a ) count the slope from the graph b ) use the slope formula

16
SOME hints on slope… ( + ) positive slope : - always uphill from left to right - when counting, go up, and then right… OR down, and then left ( - ) negative slope : - always downhill from left to right - when counting : go down, then right… OR, up, and then left

17
SPECIAL slopes… Horizontal lines have zero slope.

18
SPECIAL slopes… Horizontal lines have zero slope. Y doesn’t change on a horizontal line. P1 ( -5, 3 )P1 ( 2, 3 )

19
SPECIAL slopes… Horizontal lines have zero slope. Y doesn’t change on a horizontal line. When you subtract your y – values in the slope equation, you get zero. P1 ( -5, 3 )P1 ( 2, 3 )

20
SPECIAL slopes… Vertical lines have no slope or an undefined slope.

21
SPECIAL slopes… Vertical lines have no slope or an undefined slope. X doesn’t change on a vertical line. P1 ( 2, -3 ) P2 ( 2, 4 )

22
SPECIAL slopes… Vertical lines have no slope or an undefined slope. X doesn’t change on a vertical line. When you subtract your x – values in the slope equation you get a zero. A zero in the denominator creates an undefined answer…you can not divide by zero. P1 ( 2, -3 ) P2 ( 2, 4 )

23
Graphing slopes… EXAMPLE 3 : From the point ( -1, 3 ) graph a slope of m =
