Pre-Algebra 11-2 Slope of a Line Learn to find the slope of a line and use slope to understand and draw graphs.

4
Pre-Algebra 11-2 Slope of a Line You looked at slope on the coordinate plane in Lesson 5-5 (p. 244). Remember!

5
Pre-Algebra 11-2 Slope of a Line Linear equations 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 = This ratio is often referred to as, or rise over run, where rise indicates the number of units moved up or down and run indicates the number of units moved to the left or right. Slope can be positive, negative, zero, or undefined. A line with positive slope goes up from left to right. A line with negative slope goes down from left to right. rise run

Pre-Algebra 11-2 Slope of a Line If you know any two points on a line, or two solutions of a linear equation, 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
