Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea but how do i find the rise and the run on the graph ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pick 2 known points on the graph. make sure they are clearly defined at the points you pick. If possible i always use the point of origin (0,0) but you can always use that. after you have your 2 known points subtrack the y values and point in in the numerator slot and the x values and put it in the denomator slot and this will give you yoru M value, or slope, or your rise over run.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Starting at the top of the graph, if it runs from the left to the right like \ then it is negative, but if it runs from the right to the left as you go towards the bottom like / then it is positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are going to find out when you subtract the values of your known points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thankyou, but im still alittle confused about which is the rise and which is the run :S i can do the formula which is m=(y2y1)/(x2x1) but i dont get the rise/run thing on a line graph could u please explain ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rise is the vertical change (y2y1) and run is the horizontal change (x2x1).
