Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one way is to plug in 2 numbers for x that are 1 apart like this: y = x2; x=0 y = 02 y = 2 y = x2; x=1 y = 12 y = 1 now subtract the first from the second: 1(2) = 1+2 = 1 the slope is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the shortcut version is simply identify the number that is multiplying the 'x' y = x2 ^ there is an invisible '1' here the slope is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use the form y=mx + b; where m is the slope of the line. So there is an understood 1/1 in front of the x term. 1/1 means rise/run. So the slope of the line is just simply 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the constant number in front of x was 3. The slope(m) would be 3/1 or just 3.
