Recall that the line has a positive slope so using rise over run you move in the positive direction. Also remember to read the graph from left to right. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=positive+and+negative+slope&um=1&hl=en&sa=N&biw=1280&bih=705&tbm=isch&tbnid=vei9nDUnUKpCM:&imgrefurl=http://www.mathexpression.com/negativeslopequestion.html&docid=EqOvWzSdJleuMM&imgurl=http://www.mathexpression.com/imagefiles/c17q1slope.png&w=300&h=299&ei=ItvwTuyGIsbq0QGl2_SQAg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=194&vpy=144&dur=8318&hovh=224&hovw=225&tx=137&ty=96&sig=112547809144202361250&page=1&tbnh=158&tbnw=159&start=0&ndsp=17&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0
