it is important to denote that such slope is given in billions per year.

  • anonymous
yes that gives the slope....change in dependent quantity upon change in independent quantity

i got 116.8 divided by 5..is that right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i got 23.36
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah..as long as ur subtracting right
anonymous
  • anonymous
so what does the slope tell me?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the division was right, both 116.8/5 and 23.36 billions per year
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the slop of the line is 116.6 over 5?? im confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
understood?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i kind of understand, still a bit confused!

here is the method: y1-y0/x1-x0, considering years on the x axis and billions on the y axis. Being also x1,y1 the las point and x0,y0 the first point you will use to draw a line of which the slope is to be calculated.
