The Slope We know that we are dealing with linear functions We know that we are dealing with linear functions y = mx + b y = mx + b Slope y int The slope is not always obvious, if we do not know the equation

Understanding the Slope What makes a slope? What makes a slope? Rise Run We define the slope as the ratio between the rise and the run Slope = m = rise run

Formula for Slope If we have two points (x 1, y 1 ) (x 2, y 2 ) If we have two points (x 1, y 1 ) (x 2, y 2 ) Slope = m = y 1 – y 2 = y 2 – y 1 Slope = m = y 1 – y 2 = y 2 – y 1 x 1 – x 2 x 2 – x 1 Remember it is Y over X! Remember it is Y over X! Maintain order Maintain order

Calculating Slope Slope = m = y 1 – y 2 = y 2 – y 1 Slope = m = y 1 – y 2 = y 2 – y 1 x 1 – x 2 x 2 – x 1 x 1 – x 2 x 2 – x 1 (5, 4) (2, 1) (5, 4) (2, 1) 4 - 1 4 - 1 5 - 2 5 - 2 3 3 m = 1 m = 1 (x 1,y 1 ) (x 2,y 2 )

Ex # 2 A = (-4, 2) B=(2, -4) (x 1,y 1 ) (x 2,y 2 ) -4 – 2 2 - - 4 -6-6 6 m = -1

(4, 5) (1, 1) Ex #3 (x 2,y 2 ) (x 1,y 1 ) 1 – 5 1 – 4 m = -4 -3

Two Decimal Place Practice Find the slope of (4,217.08) (11,575.41) Find the slope of (4,217.08) (11,575.41) m = 217.08 – 575.41 m = 217.08 – 575.41 4-11 4-11 51.19 51.19

Point – Point Little Billy rents a car for 5 days and pays \$463.65. Little Sally rents a car for 14 days and pays \$1208.22 Little Billy rents a car for 5 days and pays \$463.65. Little Sally rents a car for 14 days and pays \$1208.22 a) How much would it cost to rent a car for 27 days? b) How many days can you get for \$2531.90 Step 1: Set Your x and y… what are they?

Solution x is # of days x is # of days y is \$ (money) y is \$ (money) (5, 463.65) (14, 1208.22) (5, 463.65) (14, 1208.22) m = 463.65 – 1208.22 m = 463.65 – 1208.22 5 – 14 5 – 14 m = 82.73 m = 82.73 y = 82.73x + b y = 82.73x + b

Solution Cont (5, 463.65) 463.65 = 82.73(5) + b (5, 463.65) 463.65 = 82.73(5) + b 463.65 = 413.65 + b 463.65 = 413.65 + b 50 = b 50 = b b = 50 b = 50 y = 82.73x + 50 y = 82.73x + 50 A) x = 27 y = 82.73 (27) + 50 A) x = 27 y = 82.73 (27) + 50 y = \$2283.71 y = \$2283.71

Solution Cont b) y = 2531.90 2531.90 = 82.73x + 50 b) y = 2531.90 2531.90 = 82.73x + 50 2481.90 = 82.73x 2481.90 = 82.73x 30 = x 30 = x x = 30 x = 30
