    Slope also known as gradient can be found with the following formula, Given 2 points, (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) \[\frac{y1-y2}{x1-x2} or \frac{y2-y1}{x2-x1}\]

    slope is delta y over delta x. so you subtract one y co-ordinate from the other and do the same for the x. The difference in y is placed over the x. Be sure you are subtracting in the correct order! For example: (0 - 9)/(- 6- 2) is correct (-9 - 0)/(-6 - 2) is not
