Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for any function in the form y(x) = ..... the slope can be found at any point by deriving the function in terms of x. i.e. y'(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no slope is essentially the steepness of the line. the steeper the line the higher the value of the slope. make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The easiest way to find a slope in an equation is whenever it is in slopeintercept form which is: y=mx+b where the value of m is the slope. For example, given equation: y= 5/2x+4 we can see that 5/2 is the slope. If you are given with two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) you can find the slope by: y2y1/x2x1. For example given to points: (1,2) and (3, 7), slope= (72)/(31) yields 5/2 and if you wanted to graph that it will be rise/run. dw:1328067905798:dw
