heres an example... Y= 2X + 1 M ( M is your slope) whch is 2 over 1 B= ( B is your Y intercept) in which you start at 0,1

  • anonymous
ok?

then you would go down from ( 0,1 ) 2 spaces down, and 1 to the right.

slope is the rate of change for a line. it is mathematicall defined by (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) where (x1, y1) and (x2,y2) are points on your line
anonymous
  • anonymous
so like -2,-5 and 2,5
anonymous
  • anonymous
if -2,-5 and 2,5 are points o your line then yes. however i dont think you get what i am saying. in more general terms the slope can be thought of as how quickly the y value changes relative to a change in the x value a line that looks like this / has a large slope since the height of the line changs quickly with only a small change in x whereas a line like this - has no change in its y value as the x value changes you use the formula i typed when you have two specific points from a line and need to find the slope of that line

your better off using the formula. i only gave you an example.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok that helps more
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is the formula again
anonymous
  • anonymous
slope=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

ok thanks i think I get it
